Noel Gallagher is set to divorce his wife Sarah McDonald, as they divorced after 12 years.
The Oasis star, 55, shares two sons with music publicist, 51, with whom he tied the knot in 2011, after meeting in 2000.
While he has allegedly moved from his family home in Hampshire and is living in London, they prioritize their children during this time.

Noel and Sarah are parents to two sons, Donovan, 15, and Sonny, 12. While the rocker shares eldest daughter Anais, 22, with ex-wife Meg Matthews.
A spokesperson for Noel and Sarah confirmed the separation to MailOnline with a joint statement, which said: ‘Noel Gallagher and Sarah McDonald have confirmed the couple will be separating.
Together, Noel and Sarah will continue to care for their children, who remain their priority. Noel and Sarah ask the media to respect their privacy and that of our family at this time.
While a source told The Sun: “It’s a huge shame but they’re trying to keep it civil.”

Noel has left, but in time Sarah may want to return to London. They are doing everything steadily to minimize disruption.
Noel and Sarah have been living in their £8m South Downs mansion near Petersfield in Hampshire since 2019, with their two young children.
But The Sun reports that the Don’t Look Back in Anger hitmaker now lives estranged from his wife in North London.
His brother Liam is known to not get along with Sarah and has had quite a few public rows with his PR manager in the past.
He even hinted that she was the reason the Oasis reunion never happened.

In 2020, a fan tweeted it, asking: “Hey Hossam, do you know why Noel hates Oasis Reunion so much?????”
While replying implying that it was her fault, he wrote: ‘I told you before he embraced it but you know who wouldn’t let it because she doesn’t like Oasis music [sic].
While the brothers themselves have had little contact in the past ten years, after Noel publicly quit the band in 2009.

Sarah was Noel’s second wife after a four-year marriage to Meg, which he contracted in 1997.
The Oasis star even claimed that the Wonderwall band’s song was about the blonde beauty at the time of its release, before she took the part in 2002 and says she wasn’t.
He told the BBC that “the meaning of that song was taken from me by the media I jumped on, and how you tell your lady it’s not about her just by reading it”.
Noel and Meg were known for their rough partying lifestyle which they lived through wild nights out with Kate Moss and Sadie Frost.
And after their split, it was reported that the rocker had an affair with Sarah during his relationship with Meg – who is believed to have taken the name of the publicity in the divorce proceedings.
But Noel and his wife vigorously denied the claim, with the star releasing a statement in 2001 saying he hadn’t cheated and “left Meg because I could no longer stand her behavior.”
