Jules Sebastian, Guy Sebastian’s wife, insists her husband is not violent in Titus Day’s trial

0

Guy Sebastian’s wife repeatedly stated that her husband was not a violent man when she testified about an intruder who allegedly headbutted the pop star in their home.

Jules Sebastian was also questioned Friday about a police statement she made about that incident and how charges against the intruder were eventually dropped after a magistrate heard her Triple Zero call.

The famed stylist testified in Sydney’s Downing Center District Court during the trial of her husband’s former manager, Titus Day, who is accused of stealing nearly $900,000 from The Voice coach.

Day’s attorney Dominic Toomey SC asked Ms. Sebastian about a violent incident at her parents’ home ten years ago, leading her to call Triple Zero.

Jules Sebastian was also questioned on Friday about a police statement she made about an intruder and how charges against the young man were eventually dropped.

Ms Sebastian had called her husband about an intruder who attempted to break into the couple’s home in Maroubra in south-east Sydney on 7 May 2012.

Sebastian had run home and confronted the man, but denies intentionally headbutting him during their altercation.

The young man was charged after Sebastian and his wife made statements to police, but those charges were dropped after her Triple Zero talk was played out with the Waverley Local Court.

“The Triple Zero call played in court confirmed that what you said in your statement was not correct, was it?” Mr. Toomey asked Mrs. Sebastian.

Crown Prosecutor David Morters SC objected to the question and the jury was expelled from the court.

When the jury returned, Mr. Toomey asked Ms. Sebastian if she had discussed with her husband what evidence she would give about the intruder before giving her statement to the police.

“I don’t think so,” she said. “I believe I gave my statement to the police as I remember it.”

When asked if her husband had discussed with her what he would say in his statement, Ms. Sebastian said, “I don’t think so, it’s been a long time and we’ve just told our stories.”

Mr Toomey asked Ms Sebastian if she had expressed any concerns about the contents of her statement with Day’s wife Courtney. “Maybe, I don’t remember,” she said.

Asked if she’d told Ms. Day that she’d seen counsel due to concerns about the police statement, Ms Sebastian said, “I’ve seen counselors for several things in my life.”

“I don’t know if it was the explanation, but the whole process was very difficult and very scary, so I didn’t like it. It was a very difficult time.’

Mr. Toomey told Mrs. Sebastian that her husband had headbutted the intruder.

“I know he was holding the man who tried to break into my house when I was home alone with my nine-week-old baby,” she said.

Sebastian denied any knowledge of a phone call Titus Day claimed to have received in which the caller said,

“When he came I knew there was contact with some description, but it wasn’t an intentional headbutt that I could see. There was some contact.’

Sebastian gave a dramatic report to the jury of receiving a phone call from his wife about the intruder while he was in his recording studio.

“I had a newborn baby, I was in the recording studio, got a call from my wife,” he said. “A person tried to get through the little boy’s window.”

The card topper had driven home on his motorcycle and saw the intruder ‘swinging the fence’ of his house.

“I grabbed him and held him while my wife called the police,” Sebastian said. “I chased him, he started walking.”

Asked by Mr. Toomey if he had “headbutted” the intruder, Sebastian said he hadn’t – but agreed it was what he later told friends.

“While I held him, he was elbowing, kicking,” Sebastian said. “I’ve told people, yes, that I knocked him out.

“I agree that I have told people that I headbutted him…not as an intentional headbutt. You’re suggesting that I purposely headbutted him.

“But…he had both hands in the helmet I tore open and he held my helmet…through the opening.”

Day requested an arrest warrant against Sebastian on June 1, 2020, citing his “violent history,” which Mr Toomey presented to Ms Sebastian and referred to the 2012 intruder incident.

“Maybe,” she said. “He’s not a violent man, so I don’t have a reference.”

When asked if she knew of any other times her husband had hit someone, Ms. Sebastian said she hadn’t. “He is not a violent man,” she told the court.

Mr Toomey then asked if Ms Sebastian had been concerned when she saw the reference to alleged past violence in the AVO.

“I wasn’t worried because he’s not a violent man,” she said. “I don’t think much about that incident, he’s not a violent man.”

Mr Toomey told Ms Sebastian she knew the AVO had the potential to rekindle her alleged concerns over her police statement on the case.

“I think the story was already out and it was over, so no,” she said. “I didn’t think of that.”

Two days after the AVO was issued, Sebastian went to the police, complaining that Day had withheld money he owed him.

The Crown alleges that Sebastian underpaid at least $886,175.10 per day in performance fees, royalties and an ambassadorship between 2013 and 2020.

Day has pleaded not guilty to 50 charges of embezzlement as a clerk or clerk, and 50 alternate counts of theft.

Sebastian has accused Day of using the May 2012 incident to show he was violent and “arming” the AVO he had requested against him.

That order was to protect Day and his wife Courtney from Sebastian, with whom the celebrity agent was embroiled in a federal court battle in which each claimed the other owed him money.

Crown Prosecutor David Morters SC previously read Day’s reasons for reading the restraining order to the jury.

“On May 27, 2020 at 6:30 pm I got a call from a blocked number saying, ‘Guy Sebastian wants to fuck you. They say it’s wrong, they say you’re a pedophile,'” Day had claimed.

“Two weeks ago he sent emails to my wife to intimidate her. Three weeks ago someone came to my property and dropped my car tires.

“His friend Tim Freeburn has threatened me via text message that he will deal with me.

“The man has a history of violence that I know of and my family is scared. He knows where I live and my wife suffers because of his behaviour.’

Sebastian told the court that he had never made such a call to Day, or that he knew someone else had.

The only emails he sent to Day’s wife Courtney involved evidence he intended to produce against her husband in their federal court case. They weren’t intimidating, Sebastian said.

The Australian Idol winner went on to deny that he had ever gone to Day’s house and dropped his tires, or that he knew Freeburn had sent threatening messages.

“No text was ever sent,” Sebastian said.

Mr Morters asked Sebastian if there was anything violent in his history, as claimed in Day’s AVO filing, other than the altercation with the intruder in this house.

“No,” said Sebastian. “Not even close.”

The AVO was eventually withdrawn by Day at Waverley Local Court.

Mr Toomey has told Sebastian that he has taken his complaint about Day to the police because he was concerned about the restraining order. Sebastian denied it.

The process continues.
