Before we were even able to report that he was finally
getting married, Oasis bad boy Liam Gallagher called the whole thing off.
Gallagher, fed up with the media frenzy surrounding his allegedly impending
nuptials with fiancee/actress Patsy Kensit, which were to have taken place on
Monday (Feb. 10), canceled the event at the last minute and lashed out at the
media, according to a Reuter story.
A statement from Oasis' English
record company (which seems to spend mucho time announcing the band's non-music
activities), released on Mon. read: "Contrary to media speculation, Liam
Gallagher will not be marrying Ms Patsy Kensit today. Obsessive and intrusive
media attention has removed any dignity from what was to be a private and
Although the venue for the blessed event was tantamount
to a state secret, reporters had reportedly settled in around the couple's
North London home and an undetected escape seemed unlikely. If and when the
event does take place, it will be the first marriage for Liam, 24 and the third
for Kensit, 28, who has a child with former husband, Simple Minds singer Jim
Kerr and who prior to that was married to a member of Big Audio Dynamite.
Although tabloid photographers reportedly outnumbered the dripping fans
twice over, it was the small cluster of superfans that walked away from
Monday's non-ceremony with a memento. A small group of fans who spent hours in
the cold rain were handed bouquets of white lilies that were to have been used
at the called-off wedding ceremony as some sort of weird consolation
It seems someone spotted the furious activity around what was to
have been the reception area, including early morning deliveries of 25 crates
of champagne, numerous boxes of wine and $2,000 worth of lilies, all of which
was removed just hours later. An employee of the flower shop then reportedly
took pity on the fans and handed out the bouquets. Word has it these Gallagher
brothers used to be in a band or something.
