London: Singer Liam Gallagher has hired the same divorce lawyer who handled Sir Paul McCartney`s split from Heather Mills as he looks to move on from his broken marriage to Nicole Appleton.
The Beady Eye rocker has hired Fiona Shackleton to represent him as he looks to protect his massive fortune, reported Sun Online.
His marriage started to fall apart last month over claims he had fathered a love child with US journalist Liza Ghorbani, and he is also reportedly is love with his aide and new girlfriend Debbie Dwyther.
"Hiring Fiona Shackleton is a huge statement of intent from Liam. Divorce had been mentioned but until now nobody knew he would actually go through with it. Now the wheels are in motion. Nicole will be devastated. Shackleton is one of the best."
It is also claimed the singer has moved quickly with preparation for divorce proceedings because of his blossoming romance with Dwyther, who are said to be completely in love.
