The former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and his ex-wife Nicole Appleton ran up more than £800,000 in legal bills while arguing about how to divide assets worth almost £11m after their divorce, a judge has said. Judge Martin O’Dwyer has ruled that the assets should be split in half, with Gallagher and Appleton each getting nearly £5.5m. He said the level of spending on legal costs had been “manifestly excessive”. The details emerged in a ruling on the case delivered by the judge on Friday.
