    Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is being sued for $3 million by a journalist who claims that she gave birth to his daughter less than a year ago.

    Liza Ghorbani, who has written for The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, claims that she had an affair with the singer and would now like a DNA test to prove that the 40-year-old Brit is the father.

    Ghorbani filed the papers in Manhattan Family Court and while the first case's hearing was last Friday, the full hearing was adjourned until later this month.

    Ghorbani published an interview with the singer in The New York Times in May of 2010.

    In the revealing piece, titled What's an Ex-Frontman to Do?, she detailed the events that took place on evening when the two enjoyed a late night out on the town.

    Gallagher and Ghorbani met at the Ritz-Carlton hotel bar in Manhattan before heading to Norwood, a private club at the time.

    The article, however, doesn't hint at any possible romance or even affair between the two. The piece mainly discusses his future career plans and his highly publicized rift with his brother Noel.

    Gallagher is currently married to former All Saints singer Nicole Appleton. The two wed in 2008 and have a son together. He also has a son with Patsy Kensit, his first wife, whom he tied the knot with in 1997.

    This isn't the first time that the notorious singer has seen his name in the headlines for allegedly having a love child.

    In 1998, while he was still married to Kensit, it was reported that Lisa Moorish gave birth to Gallagher's first daughter.

    A rep for Gallagher has not responded to E! News, but a spokeswoman for the New York Post told E! News,
"We stand by our story."
