He grew up to fame as the spotless winner of Australian Idol in 2003.
But while many people still remember him for his soulful voice and deep-rooted religious beliefs, Guy Sebastian has a few skeletons in his closet.
Now a popular coach on The Voice, the 37-year-old has been the subject of a number of less than flattering headlines over the years.
Not so very clean! Being the target of an armed police raid, a burglar a & # 39; head butt of the king & # 39; give, to gibberishes with angry neighbors, to take a look at some of the more controversial reasons why Guy Sebastian made headlines
In January 2011, the singer Battle Scars was the subject of an armed police raid in LA.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported at the time that Guy was arrested by 10 armed police officers after being accused of stealing his own car.
In what turned out to be a bizarre misunderstanding, Guy was arrested when he threw his car back after being towed, after he first thought he had been stolen.
Controversial: in January 2011, the singer Battle Scars was the subject of an armed police raid in Los Angeles. In May 2012, Guy made the headlines after becoming a burglar and & # 39; kinghead & # 39; after he tried to break into his Clovelly house in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.
In May 2012, Guy hit the headlines again when he bumped into a burglar who had tried to break into his family's home in Clovelly, Sydney.
At the time of the burglary attempt, Guy & Jules' wife were reportedly at home with the couple's newborn son, Hudson, who is now six.
The Daily Telegraph reported at the time that Jules called in a panic and then rushed home from a recording studio in Surry Hills to confront the intruder.
Guy said: & # 39; Jules panicked (saying): & # 39; He turns the knob on the front door, he tries to get in the front door. & # 39;
& # 39; I told her to call the police and she's going crazy again as he walks along the side of the house where the Hudson window is. & # 39;
Scary! Guy & # 39; s wife Jules (L) – whom he married in 2008 – was reportedly at home at the time of the attempted burglary with their newborn son, Hudson, who is now six
Upon his arrival, Guy gave the attacker a & # 39; head of the king & # 39; and held him until the police arrived and accused the man of burglary.
According to the singer's version of the events, he chased the criminal after he & # 39; started laying & # 39; away from the scene.
More recently, Guy made headlines about his quarrel with a neighbor in the Maroubra in Sydney, where he built a $ 3.1 million mansion.
In November, Guy threw a neighbor's radio interview after his construction was described as a & # 39; nightmare & # 39; for the locals.
Beat drama! More recently, Guy made the headlines for his feud with his neighbor in Sydney & Maroubra, after building a $ 3.1 million mansion (photo) in the suburb on the beach with Jules
The Australian Idol star particularly blamed a neighbor for the kickback to his construction project, claiming that they are & # 39; a bit nasty to everyone & # 39; on the street.
& # 39; They say they & # 39; the little man & # 39; but they live in a house of $ 2 million or something. He's not the guy, he's the angry guy! & # 39; Guy asked Hit105 & # 39; s Stav, Abby and Matt.
Guy's neighbors in Maroubra would be furious about what they are & # 39; demolition nightmare & # 39; mentioned, with a local newspaper that Daily Mail Australia told earlier that they are considering moving because of the ongoing renovations.
The Like a Drum singer told the radio show that he was forced to say & # 39; a word & # 39; with the complaining neighbor after the situation between them deteriorated.
& # 39; They are nasty to everyone & # 39 ;: in November Guy publicly beat back to the neighbor, who gave him a & # 39; nightmare & # 39; called
Guy recalled a confrontation he had with his neighbor during construction, after believing that the man had intentionally blocked workers' access to his property.
& # 39; The guy parked two inches from the back of the crane so he couldn't swing around and do things … so I had to go and see him, & # 39; he explained.
Guy claimed that he begged the man to be & # 39; by bys & # 39; and described his attempt at the tap as & # 39; immature & # 39; to park.
He added: & # 39; Meanwhile, while I take him, his dog comes up and bites me – twice! And I kept the peace and said: & # 39; It's all right & # 39 ;. And my leg is bleeding! & # 39;
Guy explained the situation and continued: & # 39; It will be fine, but now I have just talked about him on live radio – so I don't really keep the peace. & # 39;
In 2017, the neighbors of the pop star, a middle-aged couple who asked not to be mentioned, claimed that the trial had taken a significant toll on their physical health.
When the house was overthrown, the neighbor claimed that his living room wall was damaged – and frightened his terminally ill wife.

& # 39; It was dangerous if it had been so much lower (the object) would have gone right through it, & # 39; he told Daily Mail Australia, pointing to cracks in the brick wall.
& # 39; My wife was sitting right in that window watching TV. & # 39;
He claimed that his wife, who had severe respiratory problems 24 hours a day and came in contact with oxygen, was shaking when he returned that day.
The neighbor also complained about dust from the construction – about a meter from his own house – sheltering his car every day and distributing it indoors.
& # 39; We are selling the house. The demolition woman threw so much dust through the room, "he said as he walked through the empty house – devoid of furniture and fittings.
& # 39; He has a lot of money and we are just little people. He doesn't build a house, he builds a fortress & # 39 ;.
