The son of Oasis star Liam Gallagher, Gene has inherited all his dad’s famous swag and, unfortunately, his bad boy reputation. The younger Gallagher’s baddie behavior manifested at a young age. Per The Times, he was expelled from an elite private school in 2019. His father, however, deemed the incident comical; when Gene told the outlet that the expulsion was “nothing to be proud of,” Liam bragged, “Oh, it is!”
But Gene’s behavior is not confined to silly school boy stunts. The same year he was kicked out of school, he was allegedly caught stealing alcohol in a grocery store. As reported by the Daily Mail, Gene was hanging out with Sonny Starkey, the grandson of Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, in the swanky Hampstead neighborhood of London when a worker accused him of trying to swipe a can of beer. According to witnesses, Gene launched a racist tirade against the worker, who is of South Asian descent. Subsequently, he was charged with affray and racially aggravated assault.
In 2022, the charges were dropped. However, the judge presiding over the trial castigated Gene for his brutish behavior. “It is hard enough for people running late-night stores without entitled young men thinking they could get what they want by misbehaving,” the magistrate said, per NME. Despite the judge decrying that Gene behaved in a reckless manner, Liam defended his boy, tweeting, “F*** law n order I’m into chaos n crisps.” Some might say, like father, like son.
