Liam Gallagher is taking legal action against US newspaper the New York Post, a spokesman has confirmed.

The publication, who reported he fathered a child following a one-night stand, named the mother as a celebrity journalist.

The ex-Oasis singer, who now fronts his own band, Beady Eye, has three children from three different relationships.

He wed former All Saints singer Nicole Appleton in February 2008. His first marriage to Patsy Kensit ended in 2000.

Gallagher, who started playing music with his brother Noel in 1991, was in Ibiza this week to perform with his latest band.

Beady Eye was created from the remaining members of Oasis when Noel left in August 2009, after falling out with his sibling.
