The former manager of Australian star Guy Sebastian has been arrested in Sydney for allegedly defrauding the performer for more than $1.15 million over seven years.
Titus Day, 47, was arrested at his home in Bondi at around 6:30 pm after police received a detailed report at the start of the month of his alleged fraud.
“A celebrity manager has been arrested after allegedly defrauding another man of more than $1.15 million over a seven-year period,” NSW Police said in a statement.
“On Wednesday, 3 June, 2020, officers from South Sydney Police Area Command received a report of an alleged fraud committed against a 38-year-old man.
“Further inquiries revealed a number of frauds allegedly committed between December 2013 and April 2020.”
Mr Day was taken to Waverley Police Station and was expected to be charged with fraud-related crimes.
Day and Sebastian worked together for over 11 years before they went their separate ways in November 2017.
“After 12 great years together I'm very sad to be losing Guy as a client,” Mr Day said in a statement at the time.
“But he is a wonderful talent and a good person, so I wish him well in everything he does.”
Mr Day's celebrity talent agency, 6 Degrees Management, went into liquidation in July last year.
