Nicole Appleton has not heard from Liam Gallagher since a US newspaper claimed that her husband fathered a child with another woman, her mother has claimed.
The 40-year-old former Oasis star has said he is suing over the claims, but there have been further reports that his marriage is in trouble. Former All Saints star Nicole, 38, was recently seen without her ring during a break in Orlando, Florida.
Speaking to Grazia magazine, her mother Mary was quoted as saying: "Liam hasn't bothered to call Nicole since (he told her of the allegations). He phoned her the day before it came out and he hasn't been in touch since.
"She can't get hold of him. She's absolutely devastated. This is so out of character for the Liam I know."
Nicole's mother spoke to the magazine last week and her comments appeared in the publication today (July 30).
She said that her daughter was "in a terrible state", adding: "It's been so hard to come to terms with and so sad."
She said: "I won't say never to the idea of her taking him back. But at the moment, Nicole has no interest in having him back."
Beady Eye star Liam and Nicole have been married since 2008 and have a 12-year-old son Gene. The rock singer has been playing a series of dates since the allegation about him fathering a lovechild with a US journalist was published by the New York Post.
