Liam Gallagher and Nicole Appleton in family court dispute

Rock star Liam Gallagher is embroiled in a family court dispute in England with ex-wife Nicole Appleton.

A trial is due to get under way at a private hearing in London on Wednesday.

Mr Gallagher, who was a member of the band Oasis, and Ms Appleton, a singer with the group All Saints, were at a hearing to hear lawyers discuss preliminary issues.

A judge has placed limits on what can be reported about the litigation.

Mr Justice Mostyn said the public could be told that the pair were involved in litigation.

He is due to make a ruling on what other detail can be revealed in the near future.

The case was listed under the name Appleton at the Central Family Court in London. The case listing indicated that the dispute involved money.

A judge had drawn the couple’s six-year marriage to a close more than a year ago.

District Judge Anne Aitken granted the couple a decree nisi at a hearing in the same court in April 2014.
