Ruby Rose takes a swipe at ex-manager Titus Day after embezzling judgment against Guy Sebastian

ruby rose has lashed out at her former manager after he was found guilty of embezzling money from his ex-client Guy Sebastian.

The Australian actress and model shared a sizzling nine-word message about her Instagram stories focused on Titus Day.

Day was found guilty by a jury on Thursday on more than 30 of the 47 charges after being charged with stealing nearly $900,000 from Sebastian.

“Dear Titus, I’m so glad justice has been done,” Rose wrote, sharing a statement Sebastian made after the guilty plea.

Rose was previously run by Day and his company 6 Degrees Management, which counted swimmer Stephanie Rice and Sophie Monk among its clients.

“It was not only shocking, but heartbreaking to discover the depth of betrayal and dishonesty that I have discovered over the past four and a half years,” he wrote.

“There is nothing more important than trust in an artist/manager relationship. The point is, Titus was more than just my manager, he was one of my best friends.”

Sebastian said he had repeatedly tried to resolve the issues with Day but was faced with “the most outrageous and baseless allegations”, which he said were used to “tarnish my reputation”.

He admitted that he found the legal proceedings “more difficult than I thought” and said he often felt that he was the one on trial “rather than the victim”.

“However, I knew I couldn’t give up,” he continued.

“This betrayal is far too common in my industry and not every artist is capable of standing up for what is right.”

The trial was beset with issues, including the death of original judge Peter Zahra, the resignation of five jurors from a panel of 15 and Sebastian contractor COVID-19

Jurors heard the astronomical figures Sebastian was paid for performances, including $494,360 to support Taylor Swift on the four-city Australian leg of her ‘The Red Tour’ in December 2013.

Sebastian charged $54,341 to sing at a wedding in Jakarta in July 2017, and McDonald’s paid the entertainer $66,000 to appear at a conference in September of that year.

The hitmaker also received $49,114.62 for singing at Sydney’s Allianz Stadium during the 2013 British and Irish Lions rugby tour.

Sebastian admitted that he had been given a boat, international air tickets and the use of two Toyota LandCruisers for himself and his wife in lieu of cash payment as part of ‘counter’ agreements with major companies.

Day led Sebastian for about ten years until November 2017, when the singer ended their arrangement in a bitter rift.

The court heard Sebastian subsequently found “abnormalities” in the financial records that indicated he still owed payments against Day and in July 2018, the artist filed a civil claim against him.

Sebastian later went to the police, which resulted in the trial where each man accused the other of owing him money.

The amounts that Day allegedly embezzled ranged from $361.34 in royalties to $187,524 in performance fees. One charge involved a $21,000 ambassadorship.

Judge Tim Gartelmann ordered the jury to plead not guilty on June 9 on three charges of embezzlement after prosecutors admitted Day had no case to answer.

Those charges related to Day who allegedly embezzled royalty payments of $13,380.60, $936 and $361.34 between 2014 and 2020.

Defense attorney Dominic Toomey SC filed the acquittal request after the prosecution case ended, which Crown Prosecutor David Morters SC agreed to after admitting there was no evidence.

“There was simply no evidence at all that the accused committed the act alleged to be one of these offences,” Judge Gartelmann said.

Judge Gartelmann also told the jury that if they found Day not guilty of any of the 47 remaining charges, he should also be acquitted of the corresponding backup charge of the lesser crime of theft.

Day gave no evidence at trial.

“The accused exercised his right to remain silent by not doing this,” Judge Gartelmann told the jury.

“He was under no obligation to testify or call.

“The suspect doesn’t have to prove anything…the fact that he didn’t call or provide evidence cannot be used against him in any way. No inference can be drawn from this.’
