Ted Williams has checked out of rehab. But this is not as positive of a step as it may sound like for the former panhandler.

Fewer than two weeks after he checked into the Origins Recovery Center in South Texas, TMZ reports that the man who sky-rocketed to fame on the basis of his wonderful voice has left the facility. Against doctor’s orders.

Williams had followed the advice of Dr. Phil in mid-January and supposedly come to the realization that he needed assistance with drug and alcohol dependency. This revelation took place just days after he got into a heated exchange with his daughter.

Let’s all hope that Williams starts focusing less on fame and more on his health.
