Kevin Mazur/One Love Manchester/Getty Images for One Love ManchesterThe Oasis drama continues: Liam Gallagher is accusing his estranged brother and former band mate Noel Gallagher of preventing him from using footage of himself singing Oasis songs in his upcoming documentary, As It Was.
In a tweet posted Monday, Liam wrote, "I've just been informed that I'll be sued by the not so mighty little fella and his goons at Ignition [Management] if I use any footage of me singing Oasis yes Oasis songs in As It Was."
As the songwriter for Oasis songs, Noel owns the rights to the band's catalog.
Liam then added that the source of disagreement between the two Gallagher camps is footage of him singing the Oasis song "Live Forever" at the One Love Manchester benefit concert in 2017. The concert was held to raise money for those affected by the May 22, 2017 terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena in England at an Ariana Grande concert.
At the time, Liam heavily criticized Noel for not performing at the One Love Manchester show, including calling him a "sad f***." Noel, who, like Liam, is from Manchester, later told the The Sunday Timesthat he "didn't get asked" to play the concert.
When contacted by NME, a rep for Noel declined to comment regarding Liam's claims.

Butler guests on a new episode of The Ringer NBA Show podcast, and in between talking about his favorite basketball team, the New Orleans Pelicans, he let it slip that a new Arcade Fire song is in the works.
"Yeah, just working on a track," Butler said. "It'll actually be out sooner than later." He then confirmed that the tune will arrive sometime this year.
The recording is actually partly why Butler won't be participating in this year's NBA All-Star Celebrity Game after playing in it the last four years. He actually won the MVP Award for the 2016 contest, during which he posted an impressive 15 points and 14 rebounds.

Badflower has shared another preview of the band's upcoming debut album, OK, I'm Sick. The latest cut is an emotional track called "Promise Me," which you can download now via digital platforms.
"This is probably my favorite song on the album," frontman Josh Katz says of "Promise Me."
"Not only because it's a departure from what we normally do musically and lyrically, but because it really feels like a story with a beginning, middle, and end," he continues. "It describes the feeling of growing up, losing youth and losing love -- which is a simple concept that scares the hell out of me."
"Promise Me" is the fourth track to be released from OK, I'm Sick, following "x ANA x," "Heroin" and the breakout single "Ghost." The whole album arrives on February 22.
Badflower will hit the road with Nothing More starting February 21 in Phoenix. They'll also be opening for Shinedown's summer tour beginning in June.

ABC/Randy HolmesDave Grohl has shared a statement clarifying the remarks he made at this week's Pollstar Live conference comparing rising star Billie Eilish to the fervor around Nirvana in 1991.
Grohl was quoted by Variety as saying, "My daughters are obsessed with Billie Eilish. The same thing is happening with her that happened with Nirvana in 1991. People say, 'Is rock dead?' When I look at someone like Billie Eilish, rock and roll is not close to dead!"
Apparently enough people were upset by those seemingly innocuous, if enthusiastic, comments that Grohl felt the need to share the complete transcript of what he said during the conference.
"For a variety of reasons, and out of respect for Billie Eilish, I'd like to share the transcript of what I actually said," Grohl writes.
In the transcript, Grohl tells a story about going to see an Eilish concert with his daughters in Los Angeles, and marvels at her ability to "connect" with the audience.
"The connection that she has with her audience is the same thing that was happening with Nirvana in 1991," he said. "The people in the audience knew every word. And it was like our little secret."
Grohl then went on to say that Eilish's music is "hard to define."
"I don't even know what you call it," Grohl said. "But I would call that rock n' roll. I don't care what sort of instruments you use to do it.
He continued, "When I look at someone like Billie Eilish, I'm like...rock n' roll is not even close to being dead."
ABC/Travis BellFoo Fighters have been going strong for nearly 25 years now, and, at this point, Dave Grohl doesn't see the train coming to a stop.
According to Billboard, Grohl spoke about his band's longevity at the Pollstar Live conference this week, and explained why the Foos aren't planning on breaking up.
"For the first twenty years of our band it was, let's make another record and that’s probably going to do it," Grohl said. "Let's get one more in there and call it a day."
"Then it gets to the point to where I refer to it like imagine your grandparents getting a divorce," he continued. "I'm sure it happens sometimes, but why? You can't break up. Who even cares any more? Just go play shows."
Foo Fighters will continue to do just that this spring, starting May 12 at North Carolina's Epicenter festival.

Frank Hoensch/RedfernsTo all the people who are claiming rock is dead, Dave Grohl has two words for you: Billie Eilish.
According to Variety, the Foo Fighters frontman spoke about the 17-year-old "you should see me in a crown" phenom at Tuesday's Pollstar Live conference, and compared the fervor around her to the rise of his former band, Nirvana.
"My daughters are obsessed with Billie Eilish," Grohl said. "The same thing is happening with her that happened with Nirvana in 1991."
"People say, 'Is rock dead?'"he continued. "When I look at someone like Billie Eilish, rock and roll is not close to dead!"
Eilish's debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? is due out March 29.
ABC/Randy HolmesLast week, Foo Fighters announced the postponement of two shows in New Orleans due to an unspecified "band member injury." Now, it appears as though that mystery might be solved.
Frontman Dave Grohl spoke at the Pollstar Live conference on Tuesday, and he took the stage while wearing his arm in a sling. You can watch footage from the conference now via the @FooFightersStream Instagram.
Grohl has been pretty injury-prone over the last couple years. You may remember that in 2015, he broke his leg after falling off the stage during a Foo Fighters show in Sweden. He's also fallen off the stage severaltimes after that.
The postponed New Orleans shows, which were originally scheduled for February 15 and 16, will now take place May 15 and 16.
