Robert Downey Jr.'s son Indio has a problem with prescription drugs
Robert Downey Jr.'s 20-year-old son Indio is getting treatment for a prescription pain medication problem, the National Enquirer reports. We hate to make a "like father, like son" reference, but when the shoe fits ...
It's not as bad as all that, however, according to Downey's ex-wife, Deborah Falconer. “He was not addicted,” she told the tabloid. “He was taking one pill a day.” She added that he's at a "treatment facility" where he's getting “holistic, natural and orthomolecular” therapy, whatever that is.
“We are hoping to do it the homeopathic way rather than with medications,” Falconer said. “He’s being treated with vitamin supplements and organic foods.”
Indio is in a band called The Seems that has a new record deal with Warner Bros., and he's starring in a movie called Run for Roxanne, coming out in 2014. It's got Jason Mewes in it, so it's no surprise the plot is about drugs.
