Rocker Liam Gallagher's pop star wife Nicole Appleton has been photographed without her wedding ring amid rumours the Beady Eye singer has fathered a love child with a U.S. journalist.

The British star hit headlines last week (ends19Jul13) after it emerged he is facing a lawsuit from New York-based showbusiness reporter Liza Ghorbani, who alleges she gave birth to a daughter by Gallagher last year (12).

The Wonderwall hitmaker has spent the subsequent few days in Spain where he has performed at the Ibiza Rocks and Benicasssim festivals, while Appleton has jetted to Orlando, Florida for a break with their 12-year-old son Gene.

The former All Saints singer was pictured in British newspaper The Sun on Monday (22Jul13) at a Florida resort without wearing her wedding ring.
