Drew Brees, who won a state football championship with Westlake High School in suburban Austin, said he got no response from his mother when he first heard about the ads and called her to ask that she stop using them. His agent sent her a letter Oct. 20 threatening legal action, he said.
He called his relationship with his mother "nonexistent" after it crumbled six years ago when he refused to hire her as his agent.
Mina Brees said her son's allegations were a mischaracterization and that she had no intention of becoming his agent.
"I love Drew very much, and I'm very proud of him. But sometimes when people are following a career path, they change," she said.
