Back in April, Oasis star Noel Gallagher claimed the feud between his band and Blur was due to Damon sleeping with a woman Liam Gallagher was dating at the time.
Noel, 52, revealed the famous chart battle between the two rock groups kicked off after Liam, 47, found out Damon was seeing his girlfriend.
According to The Sun, Noel also claimed a lot of drugs were involved: ‘Liam and Damon were s****ing the same bird and there was a lot of cocaine involved. That’s where the germ of it grew from.
A new book, Don’t Look Back In Anger, claims Alan McGee, co-founder of Creation Records and former manager to Oasis, backs Noel’s account.

The businessman said: ‘There was a situation with a girl. That created the Britpop war. Damon s****ed somebody close to Liam. It was one of many women Damon was friendly with.’
He added: ‘Then he got off with her for a one-night stand and that created the rub. They were all goading each other after that.’
Neither Noel or Alan named the woman in question, however fans may speculate it could be Liam’s ex Lisa Moorish.
The former couple, who are parents to 22-year-old daughter Molly, dated in the nineties and there were previously rumours Lisa had a fling with Damon.
Asked about the alleged tryst in 2003, Damon remained coy and said: ‘What can I say? We were all a lot younger and we were having a good time.’
