'Golden Voice' -- The Secret Homeless Money Drop

1/28/2011 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ted Williams just pulled off a HUGE surprise for the homeless man he shared a tent with on the streets of Ohio -- when he drove up to his friend's corner and dropped off a MAJOR wad of cash.

Sources connected to "Golden Voice" tell us ... shortly after Ted ditched rehab, he reappeared at his old stomping grounds Monday ... but this time he was being driven around in a black SUV.

We're told Ted located a man named Victor (pictured right) -- his best friend and tent-mate on the streets --and immediately pulled over the car.

The reunion was emotional -- and after the men exchanged a hug and some kind words, Ted gave Victor a wad of cash and promised to help him out once he gets his own life back in order.

You have not a clue. If you were broke down in the area where Ted and his buddy used to camp, those two crack heads would of ripped you off in a second.

Just think of the thousands of movies that need to be thrown out now based on the comments from some of the posters on this board: a man finds himself saved and goes back to help someone else. Son of a gun, Hollywood could have saved billions if someone would have just told them 70 years ago that it's a bad idea to jump back into the water after you yourself have been saved.

Sad thing about Ted now is that he's a legend in his own mind - and probably will be for a very long time - especially with the help of his girlfriend. Once he's back on the streets, his 15 minutes will be forever over. Don't know if I should feel sorry for him or think he's a complete idiot for not trying harder - probably the latter.

Lots of people were there to cheer him on and help him make a better life for himself. What a let down it is for everyone including himself and his family.

OK, Ted, it's now time to piss or get off the pot. Wait a minute, I bet he smokes that, too. Maybe fish or cut bait would put it better.

Now this guy is going to be a target for other homeless people that have the TMZ app on their phone. Time to move your tent.

Who is driving this guy around in a black SUV? He hasn't done anything for his family or himself since his newly found wealth and happiness. He is simply a crack head retard who couldn't make it through three days of FREE rehab. Dr. Phil even gave his crack smoking girfriend a free stint. Gimme a break America. Really?

Have you heard about the lonesome loser
Beaten by the queen of hearts every time
Have you heard about the lonesome loser
He's a loser, but he still keeps on tryin'

Oohoohooh .... oooh ....

Sit down, take a look at yourself
Don't you want to be somebody
Someday somebody's gonna see inside
You have to face up, you can't run and hide

Have you heard about the lonesome loser
Beaten by the queen of hearts every time
Have you heard about the lonesome loser
He's a loser, but he still keeps on tryin'

Unlucky in love, least that's what they say
He lost his head and he gambled his heart away
He still keeps searching though there's nothing left
Staked his heart and lost, now he has to pay the cost.

Have you heard about the lonesome loser
Beaten by the queen of hearts every time
Have you heard about the lonesome loser
He's a loser, but he still keeps on tryin'

"It's okay", he smiles and says
Though this loneliness is driving him crazy,
He don't show what goes on in his head,
but if you watch very close you'll see it all

(Instrumental)

Sit down, take a look at yourself
Don't you want to be somebody
Someday somebody's gonna see inside
You have to face up, you can't run and hide

Have you heard about the lonesome loser
Beaten by the queen of hearts every time
Have you heard about the lonesome loser
He's a loser, but he still keeps on tryin'

Have you heard about the lonesome loser
Have you heard about the lonesome loser
Have you heard about the lonesome loser
Now tell me have you heard about the lonesome l

AWWW, that's sweet. Why is everyone being so negative towards him? We all have problems don't we? Why should he have to give his money to his family? They let him live in that tent with that man so if this is what they deserve(nothing). Everyone is also talking about his 15 min. of fame, I think he just wants a paycheck, a place to live(maybe with his tentmate) and to get his teeth fixed(we all want that). He will probably be like MC Hammer though(give all his money away to the people who was there for him in the tent days) or get back on the sauce, but that is beside the point people be happy for him now and hold your bitching in encase he fails. Lay off the haterade people ;)

I'm sure his buddy looked out for him on occasion. Ted believes he was doing the right thing when he gave his friend that money. (The drug addict code) The key words Ted used was,"Once I get myself together." The thing is he is NOT together yet.
