Guy Sebastian and his wife Jules were seen relaxing on folding chairs at a children’s cricket match. – just a few days after the singer slapped accusations that he beat his elderly neighbor with a brick.
The Battle Scars hitmaker cut a casual figure as he arrived at a cricket ground in Sydney’s eastern suburbs on Saturday morning, wearing a T-shirt, shorts, baseball cap and sunglasses.
His influential wife opted for an oversized purple blouse and sunglasses, holding a cup of coffee to go as she sat on the sidelines with her famous husband and their black toy, Ronald Rodríguez Sebastián.
Sebastian was all smiles as he watched the game with other parents, occasionally clapping in support as he sat in an $11.98 Bunnings camp chair.
The happy display was a far cry from the ongoing legal dispute between Sebastian and his neighbour, Phillip Hanslow, which was brought up in Waverley Local Court on Thursday.

Hanslow, 66, was charged in January with threatening to kill the musician and tearing down the fence of his adjoining property in Maroubra during the alleged altercation.
He was also hit with an apprehended violence warrant (AVO) for Sebastian’s protection, prohibit him from contacting the singer or setting foot on his property.
The retiree was represented by celebrity attorney Bryan Wrench, who told the court that he was waiting for Sebastian to provide him with footage of the alleged incident.
Mr Wrench told the court: “We hope the footage shows (Sebastian) towering over Mr Hanslow with a brick in hand.”
However, the singer responded to the accusation during a television interview on Friday morning, claiming that a lot was said about the court case “that is not true.”
“This is an ongoing thing, not an isolated event, there was something that happened between me and him where I basically asked him to stop damaging my property,” he said.

“There were some things that were said on his part that forced me to call the police,” he alleged.
Sebastian insisted that it was not ‘me against him’, stressing that it was not his decision to remove the AVO: the police decided to do it on his behalf.
‘As a public person, I’ll accept it, there will be things that will be said, but it’s like where do I start?’ he said.
“I know it’s more of a story to change the narrative so that I’m the bad guy in some way, but it’s not entirely true.”
Sebastián did not provide the security images before the original deadline of March 9, so on Thursday the magistrate gave him an extension until March 23.
Failure to comply with the subpoena could result in your arrest, and the matter will return to court in May.

Wrench also told the court Thursday that the alleged altercation started because Hanslow was fixing up his fence to match the look of the singer’s concrete fortress.
“The fence is already finished and I think it’s a pretty good render,” he said.
Wrench said he did not believe the matter would be resolved, indicating that he would likely go to a hearing.
Outside of court, Hanslow exclusively told Daily Mail Australia that he was not concerned about the conclusion of the case.
“I don’t really care what happens to me,” he told Daily Mail Australia.
‘What are you going to do to me? Defend the AVO and fine me for the fence?
I wouldn’t even be here if Guy wasn’t famous.
