Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez is crying foul over a $17,600 charge on his AmEx Black Card after he took his 20-year-old niece, Michelle Silva, on a shopping spree with his girlfriend, Torrie Wilson.

IRKED BY A-ROD

There's no shortage of controversy in A-Rod's career. Take a look back at some of his finer moments.

Rodriguez is disputing the five-figure sum he spent at the Blue & Cream boutique on the Bowery in Manhattan after he was told he could not return the expensive wares he bought for his niece.

The generous Yankee slugger took the ladies to Blue & Cream on Feb. 15 for a lavish day of shopping.

Store managers told the New York Post 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.

Silva picked out a $1,250 pair of shoes by Chrissie Morris, dresses by Herve Leger and other goods.

"Torrie was being price-conscious, but the niece was throwing in more and more clothes," said a store rep.

The group walked out the door with $17,604 worth of goods, all paid for by Rodriguez on his black American Express card.

But when Silva got home, sources said her mom became concerned that her wealthy brother had spoiled her daughter, and told Silva to return the clothes.

Rodriguez's people then called the store repeatedly asking to return the clothes, but were informed Blue & Cream does not issue refunds, only store credit, a rep for the boutique said.

Silva sent an email to store management, saying she could not keep the pricey duds, and warned that her uncle will have to take "further measures" if a refund was not issued.

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

"It's ridiculous. Completely ridiculous," said a store rep.

A rep for Rodriguez declined to comment.
