    More drama surrounds the Brothers Gallagher, formerly of Oasis. Liam Gallagher has reportedly dropped legal action against his estranged brother Noel after Noel apologized for remarks he made about why his sibling pulled out of an Oasis gig in 2009, which resulted in the band's eventual demise.

    Liam announced plans to sue his ex-bandmate for libel on Friday, insisting Noel was lying when he told reporters that the singer pulled out of Britain's V Festival because he had a hangover!

    Noel attempted to play peacemaker during a web chat with fans on Monday and confirmed the band axed the show because Liam had laryngitis, the reason given at the time, and not because of the other reasons that were reported.

    Noel did acknowledge that their feud was "getting very silly and a little bit out of hand." That's an understatement! They are always at odds and at one another's throats.

    In light of this web chat, Liam will scrap the suit. Their mum is reportedly upset over their squabbles, as well, reports The Sun. Duh. These are her kids and they hate each other! We wonder if their squabbling dates back to the time when they were in underoos! Maybe they had an intense sibling rivalry?

    A source told the newspaper that "Liam had spoken to his mum Peggy and she was upset by the whole episode. That was playing on his mind then he had a moment of realization that Noel wasn't being vindictive – he was just being cheeky. It was an anger that had built up over two years because he was so angry Oasis was over." Drraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaammmmmmmmmmmaaaaaaaaa!

    The source continued, "In the cold light of day he realized his brother was actually being quite calm about it all, and decided a legal battle was a bad idea. Hopefully that will draw a line under it all and everyone can move on."

    Will Liam and Noel Gallagher EVER bury the hatched and end their feud?
