Adam Savage, former ‘MythBusters’’ co-host, has been accused of sexually abusing his sister. His sister, Miranda Pacchiana, 51, has filed a lawsuit against him on June 30, alleging that during their childhood, Savage sexually abused her many times.

In her complaint, obtained by the New York Post and filed in Westchester Supreme Court, Pacchiana has claimed that when the abuse happened, she was between 7-10 years old and Savage was between 9-12 years old. At the time, their family was residing in Sleepy Hollow, New York.

The complaint highlights how Savage, allegedly, gave himself the nickname "raping blob," while treating the repeated abuse as some game.

"Beginning in or about 1976 and continuing until approximately 1979, Adam Savage would repeatedly rape Miranda Pacchiana and force oral sex upon her, and forced Miranda to perform oral sex on him, along with other forms of sexual abuse," states the reported complaint.

"The prolific abuse by Mr. Savage as alleged in the Complaint has caused irreparable damage to my client that she will live with for the rest of her life," Pacchiana's lawyer Jordan Merson said. "Today is the first step in the direction of healing and justice." 

Pacchiana works as a social worker in Newtown, Connecticut, and also runs a website, The Second Wound, which strives to support survivors of sexual abuse or assault.

Pacchiana talked about the allegations she has made in a blog post, adding that the abuse she suffered resulted in "periods of depression and near-constant anxiety." She claimed that when she did make contact with Savage "over two decades ago" he "chose not to acknowledge or show any compassion” for “the damage he had caused.”

"While nothing can give back what Adam Savage took from me, I hope this lawsuit will also demonstrate to my fellow survivors that we do not deserve to carry the shame of sexual abuse and assault," she wrote.

In a statement to People, Savage, 52, has denied the allegations via his lawyer Andrew Brettler. 

"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,” he said.

"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," he continued. "I will fight this groundless and offensive lawsuit and work to put this to rest once and for all."
