'Golden Voice' Ted Williams Bails on Rehab

1/24/2011 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ted Williams -- the homeless man with the "Golden Voice" -- has left rehab against medical advice, less than two weeks after checking in for drug and alcohol dependency ... TMZ has learned.

Ted Williams Rehab

Our sources say Ted -- who decided to go to rehab earlier this month after a taping of the Dr. Phil show -- left the Origins Recovery Center in South Texas moments ago and is on his way to the airport.

Ted's girlfriend is currently in rehab at the Safe Harbor facility in Costa Mesa, California.

Damn, some of you are just horrid excuses for humans.....his behavior is predictable, maybe, but still truly sad and a BIG lesson in the viciousness of addiction.

Baddddd move Ted! Was it him, or did one of his nimwit "advisors" want him out? Probably him.

Oh this does disgust me. Although I believe crack addicts can get straight it is a long, hard road; one that can not be taken lightly or with a few set backs. It was inevitable that this man would either start drinking or smoking crack again with all the publicity that has been thrown at him. But the truth of the matter is if one really wants to stop he/she will. He has his 15 minutes of fame, lets move on.

Like many here--not surprised. But, still--very sad. He actually had a chance to have a wonderful life. I hope his girlfriend sticks with the program.
