Did Tom and Katie drop $400K on Suri's outfits?


Quick, how much do you spend on baby clothes each year? If you said, "A couple hundred bucks, give or take," fine. If you said, "My kid wears the same Lee Majors onesie I slept in until I was 8," that's understandable, too. If, however, you spend $350,000 to $400,000 on toddler clothes over a two-year span, well, then you're probably either (A) Tom Cruise, or (B) Katie Holmes. TMZ reports the couple has sent a cease and decist letter to luxury baby boutique Petit Tresor, alleging that the store blabbed about the ridonkulous amounts of money they've been spending on the wardrobe of baby Suri (who, we must admit, probably is the best-dressed baby on earth). The Cruises say the $350K-$400K figure isn't true, and it also violates the hallowed code of haberdasher-patient confidentiality. "It appears that Petit Tresor has 'leaked' this false information to the tabloids for the purpose of enhancing its image and obtaining a commercial advantage," says the letter, sent by one Aaron J. Moss. "This conduct violates our clients' rights of privacy and rights of publicity. ... Please do not say anything (whether true or false) about Mr. Cruise's and Ms. Holmes' shopping habits, consistent with your representation to the New York Daily News in December 2007 that 'We don't talk about any of our clients.'
