(Newser) – Always-bristling actor Tom Cruise had his attorney read the riot act to a luxury Los Angeles baby boutique for allegedly leaking word that he and wife Katie Holmes went on a $400,000 buying binge after their daughter, Suri, was born. The owner of the Petit Tresor, who received a nasty cease-and-desist note from Cruise's lawyer, insisted her shop is not to blame.

"We don't leak. It's our policy not to discuss our celebrity clientele," she told ABC News. Some of the purported purchases? Spring dresses and a T-shirt  that read: "Big Sister." Hmm.
