David Harrison Levi

AUTHOR: MissBunny - (USA)

 I've known David for over 20 years. He is a kind, caring man. He gives his time to charities and animal causes. Some of these comments are so low and awful and complete fabrication. Yes he is flambouyant and loves the spotlight but that does not make him a fraud. David would go out of his way to help anyone. How sad that these people are ruining his good name.

David Harrison Levi Fraudulent Comments

AUTHOR: dmajorphotography - (USA)

I am one of those photographers, and am a multi-award winning celebrity photographer who has known David for 9 years. I have watched him work diligently to promote actors, businesses and raise awareness for Breast Cancer after he lost a dear friend to it. Actually David contributes part or all of his earnings at these events to the Cancer Society of America.

Every bad thing posted about him is false. The video of him being escorted out of some establishment shows nothing. A video of the pavement with a title stating that he was removed from some premise. Bull! He has never been asked to leave. In fact, I have been part of an entourage who has had dinner with him, and he is graciously accepted anywhere he goes.

After looking on the "net", the only person who really appears to be repeatedly "sticking it" to David is Esteban "Steve" escobar, another promoter who must feel so intimidated that he seems to resort to slander and defemation of David's character

False accusations are illegal and subject to lawsuits, so be careful how you lie about someone

David Levi Just Targeted and Misunderstood

AUTHOR: Justin Craft - (United States of America)

David was a music producer he just never worked with signed artists. He promoted performers and all of them were before IDBM because your going back to the early 90's, 80's and 70's. People just don't know what David does. David does not make money off his events he does take fees to help the cost of the venue that go directly to the venue. He does not need a business because all he does is give his own money and promote those organizations. He can't take money for them because he can't cash checks in their name. He never said he lived in mansion or owned the cars. He posted pics of him at house parties and showed pics of him test driving those cars. I know there are haters everywhere but if anything you said were true the police would be arresting him for fraud. Since this never happened I take it you have a personal problem with David.

Simon Levi Cellars

AUTHOR: S.j. - (United States of America)

The man who owned the Simon Levi Cellars is not from Israel, he , the founder and namesake WHO left his homeland of Bohemia (then part of Austria and later Czechoslovakia) when he was 12. He arrived in the United States in 1863 at the age of 12..he would have been born in 1851. and 100 years old in 1951. David Harrison Levi claims this was his father but I do not see how this is possible. This man would have have been 100 years old in 1953. It doesn't add up. I did a search as Smitty asked and I'm am just as curious as the next person, I am not trying to discredit anyone, But I could not find anything specifically on his father Simon Mayer Levi, except a few jewish familial records. David claimed he worked in his father's business, but the website (Simon Levi Cellars) quotes:>>>Under the leadership of Levis son-in-law, J.B. Jacobs, and a few months after the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment, Simon Levi Company acquired the Schlitz Beer account, and eventually diversified into the wholesale liquor business. By 1956, J.B.s grandson, Jay Jacobs, took on the reins of the business, which had become one of the largest wine & spirit distributors in California, known for building and developing high profile brands in the Southern California market...i urge you to read this article The man ran a wine business in SanDiego, not Beverly Hills or even Los Angeles. Confusing.  David claimed his car, A White Rolls Royce was used in the movie Pretty Woman, I DID A SEARCH FOR THAT CAR and   I found out that it was a ROLLS ROYCE SILVER SHADOW With Moon Roof. The car that impressed Julia Roberts in the movie Pretty Woman. this information only given to clear things up a bit. David seems like a nice guy. So I hope he gets this stuff cleared up soon.

David Harrison Levi and shady activities

AUTHOR: danj - (United States of America)

Greetings, I have not been 'Ripped' off by Mr. Levi, but I feel I need to shed light on this person for what he is doing. He is not listed on IMDB. I contacted several people he "said" he knew, they never heard of him. But the reason I am upset with this person is that I feel he is using 'Charities' to promote himself and his events, that obviously he is making some money on. In my opinion, this is sick, and the lowest someone could go exploiting charities for personal gain. I researched him, and his facebook, myspace, etc. too and he contradicts himself over and over again. He says that his event benefits a certain charity, then he says they are not fundraisers but to bring "awarness" to the charity. Basically my opinion is that it points to possible fraud using a charity name to mislead people thinking that it is for the charity so they will attend his profit event. I contacted some of the charities and the ones i spoke withy never heard of him. I even looked into it more and found out that he was using these charities to gain notoriety by This again in my view is dispicable and beyond reproach. So what about David Harrison Levi Enterprises LLC? There is no LLC according to my research. It may be an out of state LLC but it still needs to be registered as a foreign entity in the state of California. I did find a listing of a D. Levi company of America(Corporation) that was suspended in 2007, where a D. Levi resigned, this could be him and this is the only record I found. From my other reserach, there is no record that I found of any business license in Los Angeles or Beverly Hills. This brings up a point that any money that is made may not declared or recorded, or there is any paper trail of any donations to any of the charities he proports to be helping. In my opinion, this could constitute some sort of a tax evasion too. Basically, I feel that there are many questionable activities going on with Mr. Levi and deceptions that really need to be looked into. He is "shady" at best. I hope that other members of Ripoff Report can do their own investigation and find answers.

David Harrison Levi - STARMAKER

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

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. 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. Please make sure you & your friends are confirmed friends on Facebook & be sure I have your cell # on hand to send you a text message for future notifications. 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!"
I TRY to ALWAYS be a caring, kind & loving individual but MOST a loyal friend to everyone. I ALWAYS try to be consistent & remember to say hello, smile & hug those I truly care about! I am your friend for a lifetime unconditionally ... PLEASE be mine! Respectfully; David Harrison Levi - STARMAKER

David Harrison Levi is not a bad guy!

AUTHOR: David G - (United States of America)

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. I befriended David on my Facebook page and the person who I think 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 so did everyone else!

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 with.


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!

Re: David Harrison Levi

AUTHOR: smittyval - (United States of America)

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 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
