London: Oasis singer Liam Gallagher has been criticised by the mother of his 12-year-old daughter for not seeing his child.

Lisa Moorish, who conceived their daughter Molly just weeks after Gallagher wed first wife Patsy Kensit, revealed he wanted nothing to do with the child as soon as she became pregnant.

In a magazine article, Gallagher admitted he did not see Molly because he is `not on good terms` with her mother, who is also a singer and songwriter. reported that in an emotional series of postings on microblogging site Twitter, Moorish wrote: "In Response (sic) to an article today involving my daughter; 14 years ago I had a 2-year on/off relationship with a man from Manchester as a result of that I became pregnant and had a beautiful daughter."

She continued: "The man from Manchester was very angry that I decided to go ahead with the pregnancy and decided to stay out of her life. I felt sad about it but accepted it. He agreed to pay his way.

"She (daughter) is now 12 and the most amazing girl, loved by all around her. She is also old enough to catch wind or (sic) articles which mention her. My only wish is that she has a good relationship with me and her father which is between them and I would never get in the way," she added.

She began dating Gallagher before he married Kensit in April 1997. The pair then rekindled their affair a week after the wedding and Molly was born the following year.

However, in December 2000, following his divorce from Kensit, it emerged that Gallagher was paying $3,035-a month in child maintenance.

Explaining why he does not see Molly, Gallagher told the Sunday Times: "As she was growing up, I thought it was the best way, instead of having me popping in and arguing with the f*** ing woman (Moorish). She knows where I am and I`m there for her if she needs anything, like I have been since she was born, financially. I know it`s not about that but it`s better than nothing."
