London police are investigating Liam Gallagher in connection with "an incident consistent with assault" that took place in London over the summer, the BBC reports.

Allegations of the assault first surfaced in August when UK tabloid The Sun published a report claiming the former Oasis frontman grabbed his girlfriend Debbie Gwyther by the throat during an argument at Chiltern Firehouse in London. According to the report by The Sun, Gallagher was escorted out of the restaurant and proceeded to lash out by yelling, “She is a witch. It was her fault. She is a witch. She is a f**king witch.”

Both Gallagher and Gwyther have disputed The Sun’s report. “I have never put my hands on any woman in a vicious manner", Gallagher said in a tweet in August. In an Instagram post, Gwyther called the story a “pack of lies” and said she would be taking legal action against The Sun.



 

However, according to the BBC report, police are now investigating the alleged incident after reviewing the surveillance footage.

“Officers are aware of footage of an incident consistent with assault believed to have taken place in August 2018,″ a spokeswoman for London’s Metropolitan Police told the BBC. “The footage has been assessed and inquiries will be made into the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident."

"No specific allegations have been received at this time,” she said, adding that no arrests have been made and that inquiries continue.
