Self-promoter David Harrison Levi and Followers Apparently Escorted Out by Security in Hollywood


 
Truth or Con-sequences? A witness reports that self-promoter David Harrison Levi and his followers were apparently escorted out of Caf Entourage by security in Hollywood. [continued below]....
..... After others and
ourselves have been fooled a couple of times, we started to investigate some of
the promotions and actions of Levi and noticed numerous possible misrepresentations
of the truth, some people might call that lies or maybe even conning? It is
time to speak up. Sometimes enough is enough. But lets take a look, judge for
yourselves. We've been watching for some time now the shenanigans of David
Harrison Levi, self proclaimed promoter, Starmaker, Breast Cancer Awareness
man, flag waver and fighter for the downtrodden, as  well as award winning, I got a certificate
cause  sufferer of the dying and recently dead, if you can believe that!? And lets not forget, self-professed, lifelong, dearly devoted, friend to such people as Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson,
Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr, just to name a few. By the way until we see actual
proof of each claimed lifelong mutual friend relationship that he publicly
claims hes a part of (uhhhh, casual encounters, a one-time event, arranging or
jumping into a photo at an event, or Photoshopped photos dont count as proof)

And some of his representations of a recent event he tried to hold a few nights ago just scratches the surface of what appears to be a small example of his constant and numerous
misrepresentations of the truth over a year or more. Some people might call
these out-right lies, fantasies, and / or cons. You be the judge.

On Sunday, June 26, 2011 at 7:00 pm
Cafe Entourage Security in Hollywood seemed to escort out David Harrison Levi
with his "followers" and not allow them in at that time or the event
to occur as publicly represented and promoted by Levi. Don't believe me check
the fact that all the photos and video interviews we saw posted on Facebook, occurred
outside while people milled around unable to enter. Even in one of the videos
of Levi himself, speaks of how they were going to now suddenly move the event
and names numerous unplanned and uninformed possible locations.

Evidence so far from videos and
photos seems to document that not only were they kicked out of the restaurant
at the start of this supposed "planned and promoted" Levi event, for the
2011 BET Awards & Michael Jackson Memorial for Breast Cancer Awareness. Levi
apparently never properly planned or informed the restaurant of his event at
all along the lines of what was promoted to the public, fashion designers,
musicians, news media and guests. And by the way Mr. Levi do you have written
proof of even getting proper credentials and permission to use the BET Awards
or Michael Jackson name? This paper would be very happy if you could actually
produce this proper documentation. We took a brief video where actors, models,
make-up artists from The Sidney Collection, including photographers were
hanging around the parking lot and getting ready to leave because there was no
event to enter at that time. Our video was taken around 7:30 pm after our media
crew was in front of Cafe Entourage.

It has been reported that we have
been picking on him We are not. We just want to get to the truth. And if it
is the case that Levi exaggerates, and / or misrepresents what happening or did
happen at his events then the public should be informed of the truth and may
need protection from this guy Levi.

 

So were willing to ask; Who was
there and what do you know? We want to hear from you. Don't tell us what David
told you or what you heard happened or are his intended motives, tell us what
you saw. Tell us what happened to you. Did you get in on time? Were you
prevented from going in? Was there a red carpet inside? Did the promised
fashion and musical show occur? How many people did you actually see? Do you ever
feel he has misrepresented the numbers attending, the type of celebrities
attending, etc?

After watching all the videos posted
so far we noticed all were taken outside, none inside Caf Entourage. None
showed anywhere near 500 people, in fact most showed about 50 people, even in
one video did a 360 degree view of the people outside.

We have not seen any photographic or
video proof so far of an indoor event, only Levi expounding how we can move the
event right now to all these named and unplanned locations.

There are no videos or pictures that
show the fashion show happened

There are no videos or pictures that
show the musicians ever played

There are no videos or pictures of
any red carpet occurring

As we stated all videos were outside
of Caf Entourage show perhaps about 25 - 40 people milling around on public
streets and so far there are no photographs posted documenting over 500 of his
friends attended.

Prove us wrong with documentation,
if you can.

David Levi reported on Facebook,
quote "Here are video behind the scene photos & videos of our Michael
Jackson Memorial for Breast Cancer Awareness NOW on my Facebook pages from Lisa
Lewolt & Hollywood Broker TV Thank You to all my 500 + beautiful friends
who came out last night to support our Michael Jackson Memorial and Breast
Cancer Awareness Extravaganza in Hollywood!

And by the way the last time I
looked up the word "Extravaganza" in the dictionary it didn't
describe a few dozen people milling around outside on a city sidewalk in front
of a restaurant that wouldnt let you in.

In a video posted by Lisa Lewolt
labeled "Behind the scenes with Chris Tru 2011 BET Awards Michael Jackson
Memorial for Breast Cancer Awareness David Harrison Levi - she states into the
microphone "We're still out here on Hollywood Blvd still waiting to get
in"

In the 131 photos I reviewed taken
by photographer Guillermo Proano posted on Facebook labeled Breast Cancer
Awareness 6-26-11 All are outside the restaurant, the most people seen in any
one picture is about 23. Where are the 500 + people so profusely and often
professed by Levi as being there?

Another source reported and posted
on Facebook I showed up to Cafe
Entourage in Hollywood last night with my boy J-son & got word that all
performances of the night were cancelled due to a private party upstairs Say
WTF! I am so sorry for all the performers including myself that busted their
asses rehearsing to not be able to perform on one of the biggest Music award
nights of the year! Thanks to everyone that came out & showed there
support." As posted on Facebook by Sleight of Rhyme, BrentonTyler
Hoffmann, attendee.

Hoffman was told by Levi that it was
canceled. However a higher informed source we talked to from the restaurant
wrote us in response to our investigation: We are not affiliated with David
Harrison Levi nor any of his organizations. He and his followers showed up to
our venue and we did our best to accommodate them however, we had no prior
arrangement to host their Event.

Now David if you want to hold an
event. Good for you. People should enjoy themselves. However be truthful before
and after, otherwise that seems to be perpetrating false and misleading public
actions. And another thing about promoting and event and your public
representations, if you claim to be a beloved lifelong friend to someone, alive
or dead - perhaps they should at least know you, like lifelong friends truly
do. And if you are claiming to bring awareness to a cause that others suffer
from don't leave your actions open to be interpreted as a shameless promoter
and that benefits from the suffering of others. Give back. Actually help, O.K.?
Simply indicating, Hey folks there's breast cancer out there. I just made you
aware. See what a humanitarian I am? That really doesn't cut it no matter how
many certificates you pose with. Here's a hint...We know there's cancer! And so
do the millions upon millions of people who have tragically lost someone to
this disease. We are all aware it exists! We can watch TV and in case we forget
you know momentarily not aware it exists, we can sadly look at all the pictures
of the family and friends we've lost to it. Try this instead David...Contribute
selfless dedication of your time and your money to finding the cure - Don't
just it collect the money for yourself as a percent of the drinks sold at the
bar for an event and self promotion you thought up. Cruel statement??? Show us
and the Internal Revenue Service all the receipts of what you've earned on
these events. Then show us all the checks you've written to all the different
cancer agencies to actually help find a cure for cancer? Here's an example,
catch a clue; Bill Gates, he's personally given / paid over a Billion dollars to
wipe out polio.

Try speaking the truth and not the
con. And please, David youve proven to be clever and resourceful don't plead
innocence or weep over this article or play the helpless, misunderstood victim,
unless of course you need another reason for you to put on an event held in
your honor.

We are too aware of those people with their hopes and
dreams, Mr. Starmaker that are poor starving actors, singers, makeup artists
and fashion designers that traveled from far away to come to your event and only
to be escorted out because you did not have proper control or arrangements for your
event at the restaurant. We are not sure why this people continue following a
person who according to our research of public records, does not have a
business registered in the City of Beverly Hills, or Los Angeles nor a
promoter's permit. Also as of the date of this article we can tell you that we
have checked some sources at other charities and it seems that all that was
promoted to benefit others may not have actually happened the way it was
represented, but thats another investigation and article. Care to give an
accurate counting of monies, food and gifts received compared to given to the
intended charities? We recommend the public should always keep their eyes for
the supported truth, question the hype, act on the facts and not the con.
