Adam Savage who is famously known for being former co-host of the popular show "Mythbusters" has become involved in sexual abuse allegations.
Adam's sister, Miranda Pacchiana claimed that Savage sexually assaulted her "repeatedly over the course of several years," when she was only 7 years old and he was nine, reported by Variety.
Miranda stated in her lawsuit that "As a child, this experience shook my sense of safety and crushed my self-confidence. For decades afterward, I dealt with periods of depression and near-constant anxiety," Pacchiana wrote in a statement on her blog. "The public needs to know that Adam Savage sexually abused me when I was a child, as set forth in the lawsuit that I have finally been able to bring after all of these years."
Savage has denied the allegations via his lawyer Andrew Brettler.
Savage through his lawyer released a statement saying that "While I hope that my sister gets the help she needs to find peace, this needs to end. For many years, she has relentlessly and falsely attacked me and other members of my family to anyone who will listen. By spreading numerous untrue stories about us in pursuit of a financial bonanza, she has tortured our entire family and estranged herself from all of us. I will fight this groundless and offensive lawsuit and work to put this to rest once and for all."
Adam Savage mother also condemned his daughter's sexual allegation suit stating that Miranda suffers from severe mental health challenges.
