'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.

--What a shame. It's a bad disease that is hard to kick. Maybe Dr. Drew would be able to handle him and get him back on track again. Anyway, I hope that he goes back in right away because he has it made if he beats it.

And this is why most SMART people refuse to give the homeless cash and offer to buy them a meal instead, which most the time they scoff at. Because no matter what they say 9 times out of 10 they will spend the money on drugs or alcohol. Case closed.

This is not surprising. He is a one trick pony. Nice voice, but nothing of interest to say, no intelligence. He is a junkie loser and will be right back on the street corner...where he belongs.

He has a nice voice, kind of pleasant, but Top 40 radio died in the 80's. It's like saying Bob Barker is the God of the Ghetto, yes, he has fans, but that was many years ago.

Who cares? I don't. Ted Williams is not worth a mention on TMZ because he is not relevant.

There are stories of people who get released from prison and all they want to do is go back because that is where they feel the most comfortable. He has been living the homeless life for so long. Its probably the only place he feels normal. Why else would he throw it away. He doesn't want it. He wants to drink under a bridge.

I have often said that those living on the street choose to do so because they do not want any responsibilities at all and just want to be free to do what they want. There are so many willing to help this guy and he is showing us that he really doesn't want any help. Let him go live on the damn street and freeze his ass off and steal for food, maybe his ass should just go to jail the next time!!!!!

He is an addict in denial. Ted Williams does not want to change his bad habits. He is happy he is famous and rich once again so he can buy more drugs and alcohol.
