How Liam Gallagher’s net worth was built

Liam Gallagher is an English singer and songwriter who was the frontman for the band Oasis. The majority of Gallagher’s net worth is due to his success with the band, in which he performed with his brother, Noel Gallagher.

Liam got into music in his teens after realizing he had a natural talent for singing and songwriting. He formed the band Oasis with friends, but the group did not gain recognition until Noel joined. Oasis had hits such as “Wonderwall,” “Live Forever,” “All Around the World,” and more. The band was immensely popular in Britain in the 1990s and 2000s until a feud between the two brothers led to the group’s break-up in 2009.

Gallagher’s net worth, once close to $50 million, has plunged due to a costly divorce. A judge ordered him to pay his ex-wife half of his fortune. His net worth as of June 2017 is $7.5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
