Those blabbermouths at Petit Tresor are getting press again by revealing maybe-fake celebrity purchases at their overpriced baby boutique. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes sent the LA store a cease and desist in May for telling Life & Style that they’d blown over $350k on baby goods for Suri. The Holmes-Cruise’s lawyers said it just wasn’t true and that it violated their confidentiality to even reveal they’d shopped there. The letter read in part “We also understand that you have informed other tabloids that our clients have purchased various items at your stores that they have not in fact purchased, and that they have shopped there at times that they have not.”
So take this latest news as either true and questionable on Jamie Lynn’s part or rather desperate on Petit Tresor’s part. Supposedly Jamie Lynn Spears, herself a famous young mother at 17, sent her latest teen pregnant tabloid replacement, Bristol Palin, also 17, pink burp cloths from the boutique. Does Jamie Lynn know that Bristol is having a girl? It seems more prudent to send blue stuff if the baby’s sex is unknown since Bristol has a little five month-old brother. Bristol is five months pregnant and due in December, so she could know the sex of the baby already. If this story is true, and that’s a giant IF in bright yellow sans serif, then maybe Jamie Lynn knows something the rest of the world doesn’t:
If there’s one person who gets a pregnant teen, it’s Jamie Lynn Spears.
Britney Spears’ little sis is reaching out to Bristol Palin, the 17-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin, John McCain’s vice presidential pick.
A source close to the Beverly Hills baby store Petit Tresor tells CelebTV.com exclusively that a gift from Plain Mary was sent to Bristol Palin on behalf of Jamie Lynn Spears.
An insider says it was actually Lynne Spears, Jamie Lynn’s mom, who called about the gift, and requested the gift come from her daughter.
“It was ordered by phone, and they asked what could be done for under $100. They spent $60 on pink burpcloths,” said the source.

Burpcloths should not cost $60. I was kind of flabbergasted at that price, but then I looked up burpcloths on Target.com and see that even at Target a nice set can run up to 1/2 that cost, which sounds about right if you’re looking at the cost of regular vs. designer goods.
How would Jamie Lynn Spears know Bristol Palin anyway? Could she maybe feel sorry for her because she knows what it’s like to be in the spotlight as a pregnant teen? Surely some pink burpcloths aren’t the way to express that kind of remote solidarity. She might not even be able to use them for all we know.
Update: According to Jamie Lynn’s rep, this story is not true at all. That was lame, Petit Tresor, although you did get a lot of press out of it.
