When you hate, there are no winners and all hope is lost.

AUTHOR: David Harrison Levi - ()

 When you hate, there are no winners and all hope is lost. Have a greater faith & belief that God will guide you out of the darkness & back into the light. Life is too beautiful to not see the importance of peace & harmony in a world often cluttered by chaos & dysfunction. I am a man of peace & love. I am not perfect nor do I confess to be, far from it. I believe "only" God is perfect. Undoubtedly, I will ultimately make mistakes, be misunderstood and unfairly judged by others. If I have somehow caused this too be fact, any reason to question my word or that of my actions, please see it in your heart to forgive me. I take full responsibility and ask that any anger or hate against me be forgiven, understanding that life is all too short to go to bed sensing the wrongs we've seemingly created. The walls of bitterness & resentment must & shall be taken down. Through a better desire, a hope in recognizing our true selves & becoming more self-aware, losing our ego, while reflecting on and being the bigger person, I offer an "unconditional" friendship based on mutual trust & respect once again towards those I've lost along the many paths I've journeyed. As I am reminded daily of my own mortality by those who struggle with terminal illness or who've passed, I want to reach out to clear the books of the destructive, negative and wrongful behavior that lives in us all. We must comes to terms as our lives can be snuffed out in a moment, knowing there is no guarantee of a tomorrow. May your life be filled "always" with all the beauty, magnificence & wonderment that the abundant blessings so generously bestowed upon you, continue to live on in the nature of your presence & through your divine spirit. I love you ... David Harrison Levi

ABOUT ME: David Harrison Levi - Beverly Hills, California

AUTHOR: David Harrison Levi - ()

I am far from perfect, only God is perfect! I will make mistakes along the way & I apologize to those who don't quite understand me, whether it be by own accord or by the misunderstandings of the path I have chosen to follow. I hope to "earn" your trust in all things.

First, I adapted the name "Sir" as a pen-name as a writer & nothing more. I meant no harm nor tried to deceive anyone. Second, I have a dream (since 2010) to have a reunion concert at The Hollywood Bowl between Sir Paul McCartney & Ringo Starr for Breast Cancer Awareness, many say impossible, I say it can be done. Third, The name Starmaker was a name given to me by my beloved friend Mr. Richard Blackwell (the worst 10 dressed list) on a radio program on KIEV Radio The Talk of the Town in 1976 when I was a personal manager & is a nickname ONLY fourth. I have nothing to sell & I have never been a public or private Corporation. Fifth I was instrumental as a working partner in the original Chippendales Nightclub here in Los Angeles 3739 Overland Avenue West Los Angeles, California from 1982-1988

Wikipedia & Ripoff Report REBUTTAL Owner of company David Harrison Levi Truth AUTHOR: see Bruce Nahin - SUBMITTED: Tuesday, May 21, 2013 I have known David Harrison Levi since the late 1970's so that does qualify me as a life long friend. I am also one of the co founders of Chippendales. The report indicates that  the reporter contacted Kevin Denberg partner of Chippendales in NYC.

Kevin and his group do currently own the Chippendales trademarks, but Kevin's grandfather was one of my partners at our NYC club. Kevin's group purchased the club not from me and the estate of my partners but later down the chain. David was an integral part in helping us promote Chippendales in the early eighties. He is an incredibly hard working, compassionate man who has never hurt a fly...I can not respond to each contention in this report, but as I know that my part is nothing that either the reporter or his witness is aware of I wonder about the accuracy of the rest of the reporting.

Sixth, I did in fact own & operate retail stores in Beverly Hills ... David Levi's Television, Film & Sports 229 1/2 South Beverly Drive & David Levi's Baseball Card Stores from 1989 -2002.

Eighth, I am in fact the Honorary Mayor of many cities including Beverly Hills & recognized by the Mayor of Beverly Hills Jimmy Delshad & the entire City Council on August 28, 2010 with "David Harrison Levi Day" every April 28th (see awards, titles & commendations) Rebuttals on Ripoff Report #1 Consumer Comment David is not a bad guy! AUTHOR: see Dave Gorman - (USA) SUBMITTED: Sunday, March 14, 2010


My name is David, also, you that know me know I wear my sunglasses all the time. I met David some time ago and I feel somewhat responsible for the comments left by the original report. As if it wasn't for me, this report would have never been filed and I friend David on my Facebook page and the person who filed the report got very upset with the name Starmaker. As A joke I told a few people that David Harrison Levi was the grandson of the Levis Strauss Company, not knowing anyone would take this seriously, it was a total joke and the person knew it!

As for the Starmaker thing, David told me it was a nickname given to him when very young, so why shouldn't he use it! As to who owns the name Starmaker, who cares. It's just a nick name!!! I have never seen David Harrison Levi talk bad about anyone, nor does he at anytime use his position to get girls that is a ridicules statement. The person who filed this report is somewhat jealous of anyone who try's to get ahead in life, including myself or anyone they come in contact to. I want to send my sincere apology to David his family and friends if I caused any problems, I personally think David is a very good person, and would not do anything to harm or lie to anyone! submitted by David Gorman.

In 2010, after writing & posting many positive articles, photos & video's of me Ninth, XXXX XXXX claiming to be a journalist started posting negative comments about me & my sister's death & my involvement with cancer, claiming he wanted to build his audience by my so-called fame. I ignored and removed comments by myself & my friend & Facebook administrator see Kate Rossi Stuart for a long period of time, till I one-day had a Michael Jackson Memorial event in Los Angeles at Cafe Entourage and asked XXXX XXXX to leave. I asked him to leave as I felt his comments on Facebook & the Internet were unjust, unfair, derogatory & slanderous.

I apologized but he left posting further untruths about me for three long years, causing me great harm to both my personal & humanitarian efforts. I have to date, never to date mentioned this man's name on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Yahoo, AOL, MSN, Google, PalTalk, Skype, America Online or YouTube where I have accounts. I hope this clears up any and all questions about me. More detailed information can be found on my "Notes Section" on Facebook. If you have any further questions I have not addressed here, please feel free to comment, if you want to reach me 310-867-1405 424-274-8707 or Email me at TVcelebrity90210@aol.com I have a great respect for my real & loyal friends ...

Mr Blackwell truly believed in me! I have been fortunate enough to have had numerous success's in my own life from antique stores to TV & Film props in Beverly Hills from shoe stores & clothing boutiques. I have dabbled in my family liquor business. My Father - Simon Mayer Levi created The Simon Levi Liquor Company (worldwide) Beverly Hills Liquor Castle & furnished The White House through every President since John F. Kennedy to George W. Bush. Time Magazine wrote "Simon Levi is the most knowledgeable man in the wine business!" Headquarters at 212 South Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills since the late 50's, my Mom & Dad have played host & been blessed to know literally tens of thousands of celebrities, personalities & public figures. Strong supporters of the Beverly Hills Board of Education, Police, Fire & Paramedics, Investing in residential & commercial land in San Francisco, Los Angeles & Beverly Hills was my Father's passion. I am very proud of my families participation in being early pioneers in the growth of the City of Beverly Hills. My father's brother was famed Rabbi Elias Levi who was the head Rabbi of the Sephardic Temple in Westwood. My family once again played an important role in the creation of this temple.

My Bugatti was showcased from 1989 - 2003 in my gallery window at 229 South Beverly Drive at David Levi's TV, Film & Sports. I have a love for friends & family & am very trusting of everyone. Proceeding after my Father's death, I suffered personal tragedy and chose to become somewhat secluded & avoided the public. Recently, I felt it time to reestablish myself six month's after my father's death. I have been a friend & personal manager to international recording star Smitty whom I have known since the late 1960's. I have never been married and have no children.

I have been very instrumental (memorabilia) in the creation & building of many restaurants (Johnny Rockets, Planet Hollywood & Hard Rock Cafe), clothing boutiques & establishing many friends & clients in the world of entertainment. I became very visible again & started attending many charity & special events around Southern California. Suddenly, my photos became prominent in various places throughout the Internet.

Once again, on January 31st 2010, I again, produced & hosted a cocktail party at the request of the owner Martina Harrer's Orange Berlin Salon on Beverly Blvd in West Hollywood & had 657 friends came to celebrate a birthday party celebration. After concluding our pre Oscar party on March 3rd with over 1287 friends & 26 Artists & Bands performing & an amazing red carpet, we followed up by 2 days of Academy Award (Oscar) gifting suites at the Sunset & Vine Towers in Hollywood with some awesome celebrities in attendance! I am involved with so many great people doing so many great things. I am so very excited for the future & am so very blessed by so many amazingly caring , kind, talented, beautiful & loyal friends. I have confirmed & have in planning some (6) six venues for more events scheduled through March & April.

Thank you to all those sweet individuals who have asked about my sister Rosalind. As many of you know, she has terminal ovarian cancer. It breaks my heart that a cure has NOT been found. I love her so very much & will ALWAYS lend my name to any worthy benefit that involves cancer research. I thank you all for taking the time to read this short biography & hope you can attend one of my future events, real soon! "I will see YOU on the red carpet!"

Hello to everyone concerned My Name is SMITTY. I am a Friend and Client of David Harrisoin Levy. This report filed against him is a lie and bogus. I am his ONLY CLIENT. I have known David for over 35 years. I am the founder of United World Orchestra. I am not anonymous as this person in the report. My manager has been threatened by this person trying to ruin his good name. StarMaker is a nickname that was given to David by Mr. Blackwell before his passing and David has used it only as love to him. David does NOT CHARGE ANYONE TO PERFORM FOR HIM> The liar even spelled Davids Last name wrong. He is NOT of the Levis Strauss Family but the son of Simon Mayer levy.I have been performing professionally since age 5. My Oldest Brother was the Bassist for Gladys Knight and the Pips and now he is a Entertainment Attorney. you can see who I am  at www.myspace.com/doubleuenterprises. I am tired of the lie being said about my friend and Manager and I am NOT hiding. I have perfomed for Davids Birthday party and I can vouch that NONE of the Artists in that show was asked to pay to perform or promised to be paid to perform. We did it as a GIFT to David. Not because we had to but because we wanted to.. Our Debut CD comes out in March with United World Orchestra and David does have an extreme instrumental part in making this happen. So he is A producer. He does NOT go about spreading lies to gain women or prestige otherwise I WOULD NOT WORK WITH HIM. THE MAN ( WHOM WE KNOW OF) THAT IS SPREADING THESE LIES HAS BASICALLY BEEN TRYING TO EXTORT FUNDS FROM DAVID BY THREATS OF LAW SUITS AND OTHER HARM. I WISH FOR THIS MAN TO NOT GO ANONYMOUS AND BE STRAIGHT IN LETTING ALL OF YOU KNOW WHO HE IS AS I AM NOT HIDING MY RESPECT AND LOVE FOR DAVID. Any of the performers involved in upcoming shows
with David will VOUCH. He does play on women and has never portrayed to be anything he is NOT. Please look up Simon Mayer LEVY( idiot) and learn who Davids Father really is. Learn about David before you post these false accusations. You don't even know how to use spell check. David doesn't carry business cards because most of the people we deal or work with KNOW WHO HE IS and we don't need them. again, I am SMITTY. You can see me on the Games Video " Dreams" Which was number ONE for 8 weeks on Billboard and MTV. I am the one with the Hat. I HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE BUT IT SEEMS THAT YOU DO. STOP LYING ON MY FRIEND AND BROTHER. WE DON'T KNOW YOU AND YOU ARE NOT AND NEVER HAVE BEEN HIS FRIEND. ANYONE READING THIS THAT NEEDS FURTHER REFERENCES CAN CONTACT ME AT MYSPACE AND I WILL PUT YOU IN CONTACT WITH OTHER PERFORMERS THAT KNOW AND LOVE DAVID.  TRY AND TARNISH ME, I HAVE A RESUME AND A FAMILY WITH NOTHING TO HIDE. ALL OF YOU THAT BELIEVE THIS CRAP WRITTEN ABOUT MY FRIEND AND BROTHER, YOU WERE NOT TRUE FRIENDS IN THE FIRST PLACE. I AM HIS FRIEND. GOD BE WITH YOU ALL. SMITTY

FYI 1-2-3-4 & 5

AUTHOR: David Harrison Levi - (United States of America)

FYI: I grew up in Beverly Hills on Crescent Drive across the street from the Beverly Hills Hotel & at age 5 was on the Art Linkletter Show & House Party "Kid's Say the Darndest Things!" I went to Mother Goose Nursery School, Beverly Vista Elementary & Beverly Hills High School, later finishing my studies in Israel. Throughout my life I worked around the entertainment business. After school, I would go to the William Morris Agency & hang around with William Morris Agency Chairman, Norman Brokaw whom I have known since 1964 & be in aww of "the deals being made!" In 1976, celebrity clothing designer (Worst Dressed List) Mr Blackwell produced a radio show called "David Levi - Starmaker" on KIEV Radio "the talk of the town" a local Los Angeles based radio station, discussing the careers of John Travolta & Denny Terrio (Dance Fever) after the show he gave me this nickname from love because he felt it "worked!" Mr Blackwell truly believed in me! I have been fortunate enough to have had numerous success's in my own life from antique stores to TV & Film props in Beverly Hills from shoe stores & clothing boutiques. I have dabbled in my family liquor business. My Father - Simon Mayer Levi created The Simon Levi Liquor Company (worldwide) Beverly Hills Liquor Castle & furnished The White House through every President since John F. Kennedy to George W. Bush. Time Magazine wrote "Simon Levi is the most knowledgeable man in the wine business!" Headquarters at 212 South Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills since the late 50's, my Mom & Dad have played host & been blessed to know literally tens of thousands of celebrities, personalities & public figures. Strong supporters of the Beverly Hills Board of Education, Police, Fire & Paramedics, Investing in residential & commercial land in San Francisco, Los Angeles & Beverly Hills was my Father's passion. I am very proud of my families participation in being early pioneers in the growth of the City of Beverly Hills. My father's brother was famed Rabbi Elias Levi who was the head Rabbi of the Sephardic Temple in Westwood. My family once again played an important role in the creation of this temple. In 1979, I was a partner/Vice-President of the original Chippendale's Nightclubs in Los Angeles. In 1982, I was the creator/partner of the Beverly Hills 24 Hour Diner on South Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills. I have always loved collecting antiques & vintage & classic automobiles. My car collection of 26 vehicles included Ferrari's, Jaguars, Rolls Royce & Bentley to Mercedes Benz, Porsche & Bugatti. It was my white Rolls Royce used in the beginning, middle & ending sequence in the movie Pretty Woman. My Bugatti was showcased from 1989 - 2003 in my gallery window at 229 South Beverly Drive at David Levi's TV, Film & Sports. I have a love for friends & family & am very trusting of everyone. Proceeding after my Father's death, I suffered personal tragedy and chose to become somewhat secluded & avoided the public. Recently, I felt it time to reestablish myself six month's after my father's death. I have been a friend & personal manager to international recording star Smitty whom I have known since the late 1960's. I have never been married and have no children. I had recently been involved in a long distance relationship for over two years. Time & distance made it difficult to have the relationship we both desired. I am truly blessed to have many of my lifelong friends here on Facebook. Paul Dotseth, Smitty, Behzad Ghavami, Marilyn Valene, Tino Baglioni, Eli Okyle & Mark Politi just to name a few. I have been very instrumental (memorabilia) in the creation & building of many restaurants (Johnny Rockets, Planet Hollywood & Hard Rock Cafe), clothing boutiques & establishing many friends & clients in the world of entertainment. I became very visible again & started attending many charity & special events around Southern California. Suddenly, my photos became prominent in various places throughout the Internet. I once again was making NEW friends & reestablishing my OLD friendships. I decided to produce & host a pre Grammy party on my birthday (January 19 Capricorn) on January 27th & was fortunate to have so many assist me in what has been called "the party of the year!" With over 1100 guests & some 857 friends in & out & 21 musical guest Artists & numerous media outlets from all over the world in attendance.

It was a JOKE on MySpace nothing more ... You state you are one of the Top 50 Sexiest Men in Hollywood, who nominated you or told you that? We were not able to find anything on your name associated with top anything in Hollywood?

I have NEVER collected money for ANY charity. I produced Dance For Those Who Can't in Los Angeles in the 70's for the MDA Telethon ... I DO NOT accept NOR ask for donations at ANY event. My events are geared toward CANCER AWARENESS ONLY! You also State you are the Producer of various charity telethon events i.e.: Jerry Lewis MDA Muscular Dystrophy Association We called the MDA and they never heard of you but are now looking into seeing if you have collected any money in their name.

I worked as a volunteer ONLY NOT as a producer of some VERY worthy causes through my lifetime! ... You stated you Produced for Variety Clubs International, We could not find anything on them, can you clear that up for us? We called the March of Dimes, American Cancer Research, Easter Seals, SPCA, PETA, John Wayne Institute of Cancer Research, all of these honorable charitable organizations have never heard of you, but they are looking into see if you have collected money in their names.

... I was Vice-President working Management of Chippendales from 1982 till closing Los Angeles in 1988 ... You state you are a working partner and management of Chippendales Nightclubs LLC Los Angeles, but we looked it up on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chippendales, no where is your name mentioned, We called the Corporate Headquarters95 East Bethpage Road Plainview, NY 11803 Phone : 516.454.0981 we spoke with Kevin Denberg Managing Partner and he has never heard of you and has been with the company for many years.

... David Harrison Levi, you are using the name Starmaker with the Trade Make symbol, and you are using it as a registered trade mark, do you know who has that Trade Mark Registered to? We will make it easy for you, look it up here on the Offical United States Trade Mark office web site. http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/gate.exe?f=tess&state=4003:cuj4u8.1.1 No where is your name on Starmaker trademark, do you know that is a crime to use a trade make that is not registered to you? Do you know it is a crime to collect money at a charity event and not give any money to a charity, We have forwarded all this information to the local, State and Federal agencies and the charities .

Now maybe all these people you are suing you love, while lying to everyone! If any of this is not true you can simply reply to this with your proof. Or maybe the local law endorsement will have a field day with you lies?

What's the truth Mr Levi??? --------- FYI 3 --- David Levi's TV Film & Sports & David Levi's Baseball Card Stores 251 South Beverly Drive Beverly Hills, CA 90212 & 229 1/2 South Beverly Drive Beverly Hills, CA 90212from August 1989 till closing January 2002 ------ FYI 4 ---- taken from my invitation page ...

Please ask where your donations will go before writing your check! I DO NOT take or ask for donations at any of our events. I will NOT accept ANY donations! FYI 5 --- response from David Gorman to Ripoff --- The report on bottom was a rebuttal from ripoffreport written by David Gorman


My name is David also, you that know me know I wear my sunglasses all the time. I met David some time ago and I feel somewhat responsible for the comments left by the original report. As if it wasn't for me, this report would have never been filed and I friend David on my Facebook page and the person who filed the report got very upset with the name Starmaker. As A joke I told a few people that David Harrison Levi was the grandson of the Levis Strauss Company, not knowing anyone would take this seriously, it was a total joke and the person knew it! As for the Starmaker thing, David told me it was a nickname given to him when very young, so why shouldn't he use it! As to who owns the name Starmaker, who cares. It's just a nick name!!! I have never seen David Harrison Levi talk bad about anyone, nor does he at anytime use his position to get girls that is a ridicules statement. The person who filed this report is somewhat jealous of anyone who try's to get ahead in life, including myself or anyone they come in contact to. I want to send my sincere apology to David his family and friends if I caused any problems, I personally think David is a very good person, and would not do anything to harm or lie to anyone!
