The homeless Ted Williams story just gets more and more bizarre.

Williams, the former homeless man with the "golden voice," who was taken off the street and offered a job by the Cleveland Cavaliers, has checked out of rehab after two weeks, NBC reports.

He had checked into rehab for drug and alcohol addiction at the advice of Dr. Phil. The 53-year-old Williams went on the Dr. Phil Show to talk about his checkered past, one full of alcohol and drug abuse that left him homeless.

After the two met, Dr. Phil suggested that Williams go to rehab. He did so, but reportedly checked himself out of Origins Recovery Center in Texas after just two weeks.

Williams was made famous through a viral video made by the Columbus Dispatch which exposed his impressive voice. When the video took the Internet by storm, Williams was the recipient of multiple job offers and was thrust into the spotlight.

Apparently, that may have been too much for him. In addition to the trip to rehab, Williams was also involved in a dispute with one of his daughters, an alleged argument that ended up police detainment.

"If Ted is ever going to get better, he’s got to be honest with himself and admit he’s addicted to drugs and alcohol," Dr. Phil said.
