In the wake of her impending divorce from renowned musician Noel Gallagher, Sara MacDonald, the soon-to-be ex-wife, emerged in public sporting a striking new tattoo. The ink adorning her right arm features a heart entwined with barbed wire, accompanied by an empowering quote: “Be brave, be stalwart.” This visible symbol appears to reflect her journey through a failed marriage, serving as a steadfast reminder to remain resilient.
As reported by The Sun, Amidst the ongoing developments in their personal lives, Sara, a respected publicist at 51, showcased her unwavering strength as she was photographed during a shopping excursion in central London. This appearance comes alongside reports that the couple’s divorce proceedings are nearing their finalization, with ex-Oasis guitarist Noel, 56, planning to file in Manchester.
Sources close to the situation have indicated that both parties are seeking closure, harboring no significant animosity as they aim to move forward. Noel, known for his illustrious music career, is eager to settle matters before embarking on his upcoming tour dates. One insider shared, “There is no huge bitterness, they both just want to move on now.” A friend of Noel added that he is tired of legal procedures and yearns to focus on his music and embrace the future.
Fortunately, recent changes in divorce laws have expedited the resolution process, allowing couples to finalize their separation in a matter of months rather than years. As Noel gears up for his upcoming performances with his band High Flying Birds, starting at PennFest in Bucks on July 21, he hopes to find solace and closure on the personal front.
Noel Gallagher and Sara MacDonald’s relationship began in 2000 when they met at the renowned Ibiza club, Space. They remained together for 22 years, celebrating 11 years of marriage before announcing their split earlier this year. Throughout this period, their two sons, Donovan (15) and Sonny (12), have remained their utmost priority, as emphasized by their spokesperson.
Since the separation, Noel has been seen spending time with model Charlotte Carter-Allen and author Dorothea Gundtoft. However, he has candidly acknowledged the challenges he faces in the aftermath of the split. During a podcast interview with Matt Morgan, he shared, “I’ve got a challenging personal issue to deal with. That takes up most of my waking thoughts. I’m not really used to that… It’s a little bit turbulent at the moment.”
