Andy Mauer was born in 1965.  He works as a chiropractor who is only famous because of his relationship with Harvey Levin, the founder of celebrity news website TMZ.


Andy is a native of California. His parents were religious people and they raised him as a Catholic. Andy’s Catholic background made growing up difficult for him.

Andy’s famous partner became a TV personality in the early 80s. Harvey came out to the media in 2010 as a gay man. He proudly proclaimed that he was gay and told the world about his loving relationship with Andy.


In his interview when he came out as a gay man Harvey said "I am moving back in my memory for a long time when I was made my debut on TV as reporter at a local station in Los Angeles and I actually remember at the time when I was in my late twenties and I surely remember this hell-like a big fear that if anybody in that newsroom on my job found out that I was gay, that it would be over for everything, my career and reputation. I really built it up in my head. I was so scared that somebody would find out about it. I think my close friends knew that I was gay but in professionally field I had to shut it out. And I was certain, at the time, that being gay it was a good cause for thinking "I’d get fired". So it was very hard and in addition became something like an agoraphobic.”

It was hard for Harvey to come out because he felt like he would be risking his career. At the time, he didn’t feel like he had a huge safety net to protect him from the possible backlash. When he made it big, he felt that there was no more reason to hide himself. He had gotten to the top of his industry and no longer had any shame about who he was deep inside.

When asked by Media Bistro how his career changed from being a professor to a television reporter to a reality show producer, Harry said, “It really was a long, tedious process. I was a law professor, then I practiced law and decided I wanted to go back to teaching. Then something really crazy happened where the dean of my law school took on this campaign against Proposition 13. They were looking for someone to debate Howard Jarvis and they needed somebody who didn’t own a home or looked like they were part of a special interest group. I started doing stuff on the radio and after the election, the radio station offered me a job doing a weekend show called Doctor Law, where I’d give advice. I started writing a similar column for the Los Angeles Times, and then started doing these appearances and ended up on Channel 4.”

Harvey has launched many media projects during the years in his career and he was also awarded by with nine Emmys for his excellent work. Andy is always his big supporter and by his side during media appearances. He has attended all of public events along with Harvey.
