A woman has revealed an unexpected soft side to Oasis hardman Noel Gallagher, sharing a tale of how he one bought ten pairs of the same jeans worth £95 each so she could hit her sales target.
Audrey Indome, from London, who co-hosts The Receipts Podcast and uses the moniker Ghana’s Finest, was working at the swanky Oxford Street department store Selfridges, when Oasis frontman Noel, 53, noticed her ‘looking sad’.
After discovering she was behind on her sales targets, the Britpop star purchased ten pairs of Levi black 501 jeans and sharing the story on Twitter, Audrey said she’ll ‘never forget’ the act of kindness – and the singer himself liked her tweet.
The story promoted another user, Nicole Krystal Crentsil, from London, to share a similar experience she’d had with rapper Professor Green, 36, whose real name is Stephen Paul Manderson.
She explained that while working in the menswear department of the same store, the musican had purchased a jacket from French luxury fashion house Maison Margiela in order to help her reach her target.

A pair of black 501 cropped straight high-rise jeans currently cost £95 each from the retailer, meaning Noel would have splashed out around £950 on the purchase.
Taking to Twitter, Audrey penned: ‘I remember when I worked in Levi’s at Selfridges Noel Gallagher came in and asked why I looked sad, I told him I hadn’t hit target and he bought 10 pairs of black 501s I’ll never forget that.’
While some doubted whether the story was true, other Twitter users were quick to point out that Noel himself had both liked and retweeted the comment.
