Things aren’t looking so rosy for Ted Williams, the dude who went from homeless obscurity to megastar overnight.
Williams, dubbed “The Man with the Golden Voice” became a YouTube sensation after a news station filmed him talking on camera, revealing his amazing radio voice. The guy who has been two years sober is now dealing with being reunited with his mother as well as his nine children he hasn’t seen in years.
Now, news has broken that Williams was detained by police on Monday night after a loud argument broke out between him and his daughter at Los Angeles’ Renaissance Hotel. Williams was not technically arrested or charged, but he was detained and released and an investigation is still pending.
Williams was in Los Angeles for an appearance on Entertainment Tonight, as well as a chance to meet the Lakers.
Williams, who has been sober for two years after a long battle with drugs and alcohol, also appeared on Dr. Phil’s famous therapy show, which is why his family was in tow. On the show, Dr. Phil McGraw asks Williams some heavy questions like, “Do you acknowledge that you didn’t step up as a father and a husband?”
Williams told Entertainment Tonight of the incident that “fists got to flying, none of which were mine” after his daughter Janey got upset over something he said.
