Liam Gallagher has revealed he wants to end his long-running feud with Robbie Williams amid the real-world pandemic.
When celebrities start to feud, it can often seems sensationalistic. However, with so many people around the world dying during the coronavirus pandemic, those reasons also seem shallow — and Gallagher feels it is time to stop feuding.
Liam Gallagher offers a truce to Robbie Williams
Liam Gallagher offered his truce to Williams on the back of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
It came after Gallagher learned that Williams’ parents are both struggling with health issues in the UK, but because Robbie is self-isolating with his wife and children in Los Angeles he can’t do anything to get to them or help them.
Gallagher evidently felt terrible about this and reached out to his long-time nemesis.
“Oi Robbie balboa it’s LG I hear you got s**t going down in your fam I’m sorry to hear that love n light going out to your family stay cool and in tune (sic),”

“Robbie Balboa” references Robbie Williams previously challenging Liam Gallagher to a boxing match to solve their feud.
Williams responded to the latest tweet, “Brother. that means a lot to me ..Carry on being celestial .the world needs you. Your fan rob [heart emoji] (sic)”
Gallagher’s recent comments come after it was revealed Williams’ dad has developed Parkinson’s disease.
Williams said that he has felt “fear and panic” after learning the news while being separated from his family during the pandemic.
“We’ve got a lot of family issues right now,” Williams told The Mirror. “My dad has got Parkinson’s, my mother-in-law who I love dearly has got a very big illness. We can’t get to them. My dad is thousands of miles away.”
Williams said his mother is a year short of 80, and she is in isolation. He revealed he felt that she is scared, but that he can’t be there for her. Williams also said he has a fear of going back to drinking, drugs, and depression due to the resulting panic the situation is leaving him with.
Robbie Williams and Liam Gallagher’s long-term feud
Gallagher, the former lead singer of Oasis, and former Take That singer Robbie were friends in the 90s.
However, the two men have been at a war of words for almost two decades now.
Earlier this month, Williams tried to reignite the feud and challenged Gallagher to a fight to raise money for Britain’s NHS health service and was compared to the fight between KSI and Logan Paul.
