2007 has not been a good year for building relationships with the authorities for Trelise Cooper and her whanau.
There was that silly trademark lawsuit that Trelise brought against fellow designer Tamsin Cooper which was eventually dropped in July. And yesterday not-so-secret news finally broke that Trelise’s step-daughter, Nadia, has been charged with possession of methamphetamine for supply and possession of utensils.
Meanwhile, Lita has heard from tweety birdies that Trelise herself was recently busted in America. She was trying to smuggle her own products into the United States without declaring them to Customs. When asked why her luggage was stuffed with goods stamped with the Trelise Cooper brand she tried to pass everything off as personal possessions, but Customs Officers didn’t buy it.
Incidentally, who is buying Trelise Cooper’s stuff?
