The high-profile Sydney judge presiding over the fraud case involving Guy Sebastian’s former manager has died, just days after he was put on life support.

Judge Peter Zahra was rushed in an ambulance to Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital on Thursday after he suffered a stroke.

Zahra’s sudden death will see the Sebastian-Day trial adjourned until next week when it will be reallocated to another judge.

Day allegedly pocketed money from royalties and gig fees that should have gone to the singer, but the agent has argued there was a clear answer for every charge.

Day worked for Sebastian for a decade until their relationship soured in 2017 – leading to civil action and now a criminal trial.
