Gallagher spooked by Ono visit

Liam Gallagher cut short a meeting with John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono, because he felt "weird" in her company.

The rocker recently visited the late Beatle's wife in New York and was given a tour of Ono's home.

But Gallagher, who named his son Lennon after his idol, made a sharp exit, after picking up vibes from the apartment.

He says: "I had a cup of tea and biscuits. She showed me round the place. I was there for ages but I had to leave because it was freaking me out.

"Something weird happened because I haven't stopped writing songs since the visit."
