He checks himself out of rehab against medical advice.

The man with the golden voice, Ted Williams

Ted "Golden Voice" Williams, who went from being homeless to gaining worldwide fame because of his tremendous voice, has checked himself out of rehab against medical advice. Less than two weeks after checking into Origins Recovery Center for drug and alcohol addiction, Williams, who checked himself into rehab after a controversial appearance on Dr. Phil, left the rehab center in south Texas yesterday, headed for the airport. His whereabouts are currently unknown. Williams' girlfriend is still in rehab in Costa Mesa, Calif.

Hopefully Williams will return to rehab so that he can get the help that he obviously needs. Clearly, the fame and celebrity were too much, too soon.
