LOS ANGELES – A homeless man who became a YouTube sensation for his “golden voice” will check into rehab for treatment of alcohol and drug dependency, representatives for the “Dr. Phil” show said yesterday.

Ted Williams, 53, made the decision to enter a private rehabilitation facility after a discussion with Dr. Phil McGraw about a physical altercation with one of his daughters, the show said in a statement.

Williams and his family discussed that incident during a taping of “Dr. Phil,” scheduled for broadcast today, the show said; and family members revealed Williams has been drinking daily.
