‘Resolved’: Shane Jacobson and former manager settle out of court

Jacobson earned just over $900,000 from various gigs in 2018 and 2019, according to court documents, including $27,000 for appearing in Seven’s The Real Full Monty and $180,000 for voicing the narrator in the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Ms Fryers sought a 15 to 20 per cent cut on Jacobson’s various fees, arguing her total commission should amount to $136,892. On Monday, Ms Fryers and her lawyers confirmed the matter had settled out of court.

“The matter has been resolved by the parties and I have no further comment,” she said.

A spokesman for the County Court of Victoria also confirmed the matter had been dismissed. Ms Fryers refused to say how much money passed hands as part of the settlement, if at all.

Last year, the court heard Jacobson and Ms Fryers parted ways in February 2018 over a heated dispute. The disagreement centred around whether or not the longtime manager could bring a plus-one to her client’s wedding.

Jacobson and his lawyers have been contacted for comment. The Little Big Shots host previously told the County Court his former publicist had “grossly exaggerated” the services she provided to him. The TV star has also described the court action as “heartbreaking”.

“It was very disappointing and heartbreaking because I’d been working with Deb for a long time,” he previously said. “We were very close.”
