Liam Gallagher‘s son Gene Gallagher, Ringo Starr’s grandson Sonny Starkey, and IMG model Noah Ponte are accused of a late-night fight in a Tesco with Mr Ponte saying to an Indian staff member to “go back where [he] came from”, a court heard.
The trio of celebrity teens appeared in court today where they all plead not guilty to fighting in a Hampstead Tesco Express.
Ponte is accused of racially abused the shopkeeper after he couldn’t buy a can of beer at midnight, as it was after 11pm, and tried to walk out of the store without paying, the court heard.
All three are charged with affray, using or threatening unlawful violence towards another, with 19-year-old Ponte also charged with racially aggravated common assault.
He is accused of telling a worker, “You bloody Indians. Go back to where you came from. You’re not wanted here.”
Gallagher, 18 and Starkey, 19 today, as well as Ponte, all elected for their trial to take place at the Crown Court.
Starkey was supported in court by drummer and road manager father Jason, while Liam Gallagher did not attend.
The teenage trio, who wore suits, only spoke to give their addresses, dates of birth and said their nationality is English.
