In the wrinkles of the very serious newspaper called The New York Times, you will find that there are journalists who are paid to hang out with celebrities for features like "A Night Out With" (which used to be regular in the Styles Section but no longer runs). Enter Liza Ghorbani, one of these Times journalists, and her lawsuit against Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, whom she accompanied for one night for an article back in 2010.
The New York Post revealed Ghorbani's identity yesterday after reporting the lawsuit on Wednesday. "Liza met Liam when she interviewed him for the Times and they began an affair. It continued until around three months after the birth of the child," The Post's source said. The tabloid reports that Ghorbani's child was born seven months ago.
In light of these these revelations, Gallagher is threatening legal action against The Post, The Guardian reports, though no lawsuit has been filed so far. Meanwhile — and yes, we know this is getting complicated — Ghorbani's suit against Gallagher is proceeding. "Liza isn’t after millions of dollars, she is simply seeking child support and no amount has yet been set," the Post's source said.
