'Golden Voice' Ted Williams Files Lawsuit in Contract Dispute

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Ted Williams, the homeless man who became an Internet star early this year thanks to his "golden voice," has filed a lawsuit against three people that he claims took advantage of his addictions to cut themselves a sweet deal, reports TMZ.

Williams alleges that defendants Zev Suissa, Randy Thomas and Joe Cipriano convinced him to sign a "one-sided, onerous, burdensome, non-negotiated and blatantly unfair" deal that gives them the majority of any money he earns.

Williams explains in court papers that when he inked the deal he was dealing with "significant drug and alcohol abuse" issues and was "totally incapable of understanding what was happening to him or handling his own affairs."  He is asking a judge to void the contract.

Williams became a household name after The Columbus Dispatch posted a video online of him showcasing his deep radio voice, which immediately landed him a gig as an announcer for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese TV commercials.
