Don’t you wish you had a rich uncle like A-Rod?

NY Yankees star slugger Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez was probably trying to impress his current girlfriend, Torrie Wilson, when he took her and his 20-year-old niece shopping the other day. (He is pictured above with Silva, left, and his other niece in a photo dated Oct. 2009.)

According to the NY Post’s Page Six, A-Rod took his new girlfriend, Torrie, and his niece, Michelle Silva, shopping at the pricey Blue & Cream boutique on the Bowery in NYC on Feb. 15. He laughed as the girls literally threw it in the bag — to the tune of $17,600, which he paid for with his black AMEX card.

Store managers tell Page Six that Rodriguez is a regular at the boutique, and has previously dropped thousands of dollars on clothes for Silva and ex-girlfriends Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz.

So when Silva picked out a $1,250 pair of shoes by Chrissie Morris, dresses by Hervé Léger and other goods, A-Rod didn’t bat an eye. “Torrie was being price-conscious, but the niece was throwing in more and more clothes,” said a store rep. Rodriguez “joked around with the saleswomen while the girls shopped,” the rep added.

But when A-Rod’s niece took all her goodies home, her mother — A-Rod’s sister — was outraged at the high price her brother paid for the clothes. Silva’s mother told Silva to take everything back to the store.

According to Page Six, Rodriguez’s people called the store repeatedly asking to return the clothes, but Blue & Cream staff informed them they don’t issue refunds, only store credit.

A-Rod’s niece sent the store management an email, saying she couldn’t keep the expensive clothes. She also warned that her uncle will have to take “further measures” if a refund wasn’t issued, according to Page Six.

This weekend, American Express notified Blue & Cream that Rodriguez is disputing the charges.

“It’s ridiculous. Completely ridiculous,” a store rep told Page Six. “We have security tapes and coverage of him at the checkout counter. We’re completely not in the wrong.”

    Clearly he has a case of buyers remorse…he could have let his neice ball out at Abercombie, or The Buckle…damnit I swear heaux’s be winning, if his girlfriend is impressed that he spent money like that on his neice she’s a fool, shyt that deducted from her shyt

  • waterlily_76

    Yes. I do wish I had a rich uncle like A-Rod. :coffee:

  • ShoYaRight

    That store is so wrong for blabbing to the media. This man has spent thousands of dollars at the boutique in the past and probably would have spent thousands more…but why would he after they blabbed all of his personal business to the media.

    STUPID, STUPID store!

    And yes, maybe the store has a do not return policy…but common sense would tell you to make an exception for a frequent millionaire shopper.

    #duh!

  • FoxE

    Just let the girl keep the clothes & earn them back….. or is that unheard of since she’s the niece of A-rod?

  • £ the commenter formally known as Hershey

    I do :applaud: her mom for not wanting her daughter to have designer clothing that she probably can’t afford to keep up with. I would teach her lil azz a good lesson, I’d drive right to that store, hop out with all those shoes and clothes, get the store credit and buy me all new shyt and make her watch as I did it…that’ll teach her! :lol:

  • EB

    Is the mother trying to pocket the money from the gifts? Shouldn’t the gifts go back to A-Rod since he purchased them on his card, even if the stew doesn’t offer refunds. :shrug:

  • CD FENTY

    If they wont take them back and the mother still refuses give them to a shelter I am sure they would welcome the clothes :shrugs:

    If she is 20 and he’ll drop that much on ONE shopping trip, why doesn’t she ask for a year or two of paid rent in her own place so she won’t have to worry about her Mother’s opinion on things? :shrug:

    They give refunds in Chicago too. But I think they give store credit after after 21 days…

    Alex and Suzy have a good relationship so I’m surprised why he didn’t know ahead of time NOT to do this again (extravagant spree). Alex already gives her & his family a lot of money as is – she probably doesn’t want her daughter taking further advantage of him or creating habits she knows she can’t maintain.
