Sometimes you just need your parent!

Ben Affleck spent some quality time with mom Christine this morning in Brentwood, just two days after we caught him leaving his outpatient buddhist rehab facility in West Hollywood. The actor has been receiving treatment for his alcohol addiction, after initially seeking help last February and getting sober.

Rumors that the Batman star had relapsed have been circulating for months, and he was spotted buying booze with girlfriend Lindsay Shookus on multiple occasions.

A source tells X17:
    "Ben's friends have been on him about keeping up with treatment. When he got out of rehab earlier this year, he was really focused, but then he started to take a more relaxed approach to sobriety when he went public with Lindsay. Everyone thought it was only a matter of time before Ben let his drinking get out of hand again, so they told him in no uncertain terms to get more help. Jen Garner has largely kept her mouth shut, but she does worry and want the best for him because of the kids."

Brad Pitt should offer him up some advice on how to stay on the straight and narrow!
