Drew Brees, your New Orleans Saints quarterback, has had a rocky relationship with his mom ever since he refused to sign her as his agent when he came out of Purdue. Unfortunately, things seem to have taken a turn for the worse:

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has asked his mother to stop using his picture in TV commercials touting her candidacy for a Texas appeals court. In commercials running on Austin stations, Mina Brees had been using a picture of her son in the uniform of his former team, the San Diego Chargers, to emphasize her ties to football.

Ms. Brees has agreed to pull the ads, saying she'd "rather air commercials that use Philip Rivers anyway."
