Rock star Liam Gallagher married singer Nicole Appleton in 2008. In 2010, the New York Times ran what the New York Post describes as a “glowing piece” about Gallagher that was written by Liza Ghorbani. Ghorbani has now filed a $3 million paternity suit against Gallagher claiming she is the mother of his child. Gallagher is now suing the New York Post for reporting all of this.
According to a Post source, the affair between the married singer and the Times’ writer began either during or directly after the interview, and ended just a few months after the child was born.
A good faith search on the New York Times website reveals that “newspaper of record” has not recorded nor disclosed this conflict of interest, either as a separate story or as an update to Ghorbani’s original 2010 article.
