Former Oasis lead singer Liam Gallagher and his wife Nicole Appleton are divorced.

It took a London court just 68 seconds to issue a “decree nisi” for Gallagher, 41, and Appleton, 39, The Guardian reported.

In her petition for divorce, Appleton accused her husband, now frontman of the band Beady Eye, of adultery in July 2013, an accusation that he did not contest, the paper said.

A judge determined that the All Saints singer had “sufficiently proved” her allegations, noting that Appleton “is entitled to a decree of divorce, the marriage having irretrievably broken down, the facts found proved being the respondent’s adultery.”

Appleton told the court in her filing that Gallagher had fathered a child with the woman with whom he had had an affair.

The music couple first met in 2000 and wed on Valentine’s Day in 2008. They have one child together, Gene, now 12.

Gallagher had previously been married to actress Patsy Kensit, from 1997 to 2000.
