Noel Gallagher has explained the reasons behind Oasis' split in 2009 just before they were about to appear at a music festival in Paris.

Speaking at a press conference earlier today, which was held to launch his new band Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, the 44-year-old musician responded to questions about Oasis' split and gave an insight into how it came about.

Noel said: ''I never had enough of Oasis, I had enough of [Liam] and our relationship but it was never as bad as people made out.

"It all unravelled when he started his clothing line and wanted to advertise it on our tour and I didn't agree with that.''

Noel added of their argument in Paris: ''After Liam's violent outburst in the dressing room I just thought 'I'm out of here'. I got in a car and left that show.

"If I could go back and do those two shows we had left on that tour I would have done them. We may never have split up, we may have all just gone on a hiatus to do our own thing.

"I mastered my role in that band. Liam just doesn't like me in a violent way... I did everyone a favour."

Following the press conference this afternoon, Liam took to Twitter to simply post "s**tbag" after stories of Noel speaking about the Oasis split started to appear online.

Liam has previously said that Oasis split because he and Noel behaved like "d**ks".
