Liam Gallagher’s girlfriend has denied he grabbed her by the throat at a trendy London nightclub, insisting they were ‘drunkenly messing around’.
Debbie Gwyther, 36, spoke out after footage released by The Sun showed the Oasis star, 45, putting his hands around her neck during a blazing row.
But Debbie, who has worked for the singer since 2013, told the Mirror yesterday: ‘We were drunkenly messing around and it’s been made into something it wasn’t.
She added: ‘It feels like they’re on a witch hunt to dirty Liam’s name. Our relationship is stronger than ever. Liam’s never laid a hand on me.’
Debbie branded claims her partner had been violent ‘ridiculous’.

Liam has also fiercely denied ever being violent, writing on Twitter last week: ‘Firstly I have never put my hands on any woman in a vicious manner. Secondly, there is only 1 witch and we all know who that is.. as you were LG x’.

Before the footage emerged, Debbie took to Instagram saying: ‘The Sun have surpassed themselves yet again. Shame on them and on all who have asked for Liam’s comment rather than mine.
‘Caring individuals all of them I’m sure. Pack of lies as per usual…’Former personal assistant’ being amongst the offensive.
‘They’ve taken a couple of years off my age though….journalism at its best! Lazy, sexist nonsense…legal case impending. As We Were.’

It comes as a former police officer told the Sun the musician may have been arrested if law enforcement had seen the argument.
Colin Sutton said: ‘It is potentially an assault and therefore potentially a domestic assault — something that would be taken particularly seriously.
‘He could potentially have been arrested whether or not a victim wanted to press charges if the police had witnessed what they believed to be an assault.’
The couple were in the nightclub from around 10pm.

They had arrived with a male friend after having dined Scott’s restaurant in Mayfair.
‘Liam and Debbie had been arguing and then he just completely lost control and went at her’ a source told the Sun.
‘He was aggressively pushing her down the corridor. Then he stopped and turned away and she started to follow him.
‘He suddenly wheeled round, reached out and pushed her by the throat with one hand while holding what looked like a bottle of beer in the other.
A reveller had earlier complained to a security guard that Liam was being aggressive towards Debbie.
Two years ago the the pair publicly clashed at a celebrity haunt in Oxfordshire.
The couple were seen arguing at the bar of the Soho Farmhouse in early 2016 shortly after Liam was ordered to split his £11million fortune with ex-wife and All Saints star Nicole Appleton.
