Guy Sebastian allegedly defrauded of $1.1m by ex manager

Guy Sebastian's former manager Titus Day has been charged with defrauding the Aussie vocal superstar over a seven-year period.

NSW Police confirmed Day, 47, was arrested at his home in Bondi just after 6.30pm yesterday and taken to Waverley Police Station where he was charged with fraud-related offences.

The allegations against Day were first reported to South Sydney police detectives on June 3.

The Daily Telegraph understands the allegations are that Day knowingly withheld proceeds of Sebastian's work from him between December 2013 and April 2020.

It's another nasty turn in the bitter split between the pair, which occurred in November 2017 after 12 years together.

The men are already suing each other in the Federal Court over claims to royalties and allegedly unpaid fees.

Sebastian's lawyers have argued neighbouring rights royalties from the sale of his work have gone missing and he wants $200,000 from his former manager.

Day is also claiming to be owed $800,000 from Sebastian.
