Last month, Yankees player Alex Rodriguez went on a shopping spree at Blue & Cream, and dropped $17,000 on gifts for his girlfriend and niece. Yes, $17,000. Apparently, his niece's mom wasn't too happy about A-Rod spoiling her daughter with designer dresses and shoes and demanded that it all be taken back.

Unfortunately, Blue & Cream has a no returns policy. So what did the baseball player do? Naturally, he tried disputing the charges that were put on his credit card. But the store's not having it. "It's ridiculous," a store rep said, "Completely ridiculous. We have We have security tapes and coverage of him at the checkout counter. We're completely not in the wrong." Guess he'll have to take that store credit. [racked ny]
