Hell-raising Robert Downey Jr and his actress model wife Deborah Falconer have filed for divorce after 12 years of marriage.

The two, who married in 1992 and separated two years ago, have a son, Indio.

Although the boy will live with his mother, "Downey remains very involved in the upbringing of his son", according to a spokesperson.

The 39-year-old actor will now be able to marry again, to his producer fiancée Susan Levin. He met her in 2003 during filming on 'Gothika', in which he co-starred with Halle Berry.

The troubled star, who received a best actor Oscar nomination in 1992 for his role in the film 'Chaplin', and who won a Golden Globe for his work in the 'Ally McBeal' series, has undergone rehabilitation following convictions for cocaine possession and driving under the influence of drugs.
