Court hearing between Guy Sebastian and former agent Titus Day set

Court date set for hearing between Guy Sebastian and longtime former agent Titus Day over ‘hundreds of thousands of dollars’ owed

A date has been set for a court hearing between Guy Sebastian and his former agent Titus Day, who both allege they owe each other hundreds of thousands of dollars.  

Federal Court Justice Tom Thawley will hear the case over three days in June 2020, The Daily Telegraph reported on Thursday. 

Sebastian, who left Day’s agency 6 Degrees back in November 2017, claims he is owed $200,000 over alleged breach of contract, as well as performance and other fees, the Sydney Morning Herald reported last month.

Meanwhile Day, whose agency went into liquidation in July 2019, says he is owed $800,000 by the singer and his stylist wife Jules.

‘What we are owed is still being calculated but I estimate between Guy, his wife and the Sebastian Foundation, 6 Degrees is owed $800,000,’ he told The Daily Telegraph back in August 2018. 

Sebastian parted ways with his longtime manager during an ’emotional meeting’ back in November 2017.

Day, who also managed Guy’s wife Jules, told the newspaper at the time that he was ‘very sad’ to split with his top-tier client.

‘After 12 great years together I’m very sad to be losing Guy as a client,’ he stated.

‘But he is a wonderful talent and a good person, so I wish him well in everything he does,’ he continued.

The successful duo had worked together since 2005, two years after Sebastian triumphed as winner of Australian Idol.

Titus was also the agent of Channel 10 personality Grant Denyer and helped him rebuild his career after the TV presenter entered himself into a rehab facility in Thailand.

In 2018, Denyer sacked Day after eight years working together. 

Day claims Grant and his wife, Chezzi, allegedly cut ties with him because they no longer wanted to pay commission.
