Sebastian claims Day owes him $200,000 over an alleged breach of contract and unpaid fees, while the singer's former manager says he is owed $800,000.

Day previously told The Sydney Morning Herald that his business was "crippled" due to money allegedly owed by Sebastian.

"Guy terminated the management contract after 11-and-a-half years without notice and then refused to pay me commissions on any work that I did, even for events that had been completed. That crippled my business," he told the publication.

"All income that is earned comes to the manager first and then is paid on after commissions are deducted. That's how management deals work. Any money I am holding from royalties or otherwise is a fraction of what he refused to pay me as commissions for work I did as his manager."

He had previously represented other Australian celebrities including Sophie Monk and Shannon Noll.

Day has been refused bail to appear at Waverley Local Court later today
