Robert Downey Jr. Opens Up About His Son's Struggle With Addiction

Robert Downey Jr. is opening up about his 22-year-old son Indio‘s battle with addiction in a new post on his Facebook on Friday (March 11).

The 50-year-old actor wrote a touching note about Indio becoming sober and his dedication to music and his band, The Dose.

“Congrats are in order for my firstborn, and I’m proud to oblige — Having braved the crucible of addiction (and pleased the court), his ongoing commitment to recovery continues to inspire and amaze…,” he wrote.

Robert added, “As long as we can remember, Indio has been a musician at heart. In the last several years, with his band mate Ralph Alexander, I’ve witnessed their dedication, consistency, and determination to grow as artists. I’ve also made it my business to be of as little help as possible, as nepotism usually does more harm than good…Just for today, I’m gonna ease up on that. Trust me and give these fine young men a listen.”

Robert Downey, Jr. Pardoned for His 90s Drug Arrest

Robert Downey, Jr. has been pardoned for his late 1996 crime when he was pulled over on a Los Angeles highway. Heroin, cocaine and a pistol were found in his vehicle.

The 50-year-old actor is one of 91 people to be pardoned on Thursday (December 24).

The pardon does not erase records that a conviction occurred, but rather, restores voting rights and shows the person in question has shown “exemplary behavior.”

Robert was pardoned by Governor Jerry Brown for his 1996 arrest. He spent a year in jail for his crimes.
