Julia Williams says she's broken-hearted but not surprised that her newly famous son, Ted Williams, the man with the golden voice, has left rehab in Texas after barely two weeks.
"I'm very sorry that he left, and I'm very upset," Williams, 90, tells PEOPLE. "Certainly I want him to go back. He needs help."
Julia says she heard from family that Ted went to California, perhaps to Hollywood, to record children's books. She says she's optimistic he'll keep busy and not return to a life on the streets, but doesn't think he can stay sober without professional help.

The homeless man with the golden voice, discovered on the streets of Columbus, Ohio, earlier this month, has left a rehab facility in Texas against the advice of his doctors, according to a report on TMZ.com.
Williams, 53, had checked into the Origins Recovery Center less than two weeks ago for drug and alcohol problems after a heart to heart with Dr. Phil McGraw.

The voice may be velvety, but the past is checkered.
According to The Smoking Gun, homeless-man-turned-Internet-sensation Ted Williams, 53, has a rap sheet that includes theft, robbery, escape, forgery and drug possession. The Brooklyn native has at least six mug shots.
As recently as July, a local businessman called the police on Williams and a female friend who refused to leave the premises, alleging Williams had become an "ongoing problem."
