Miranda Pacchiana is the younger sister of Adam Savage, Miranda accused Adam of raping her when they lived in Sleepy Hollow, New York, during the 1970s. On June 30th, she filed a lawsuit.
In the lawsuit, Miranda claimed that the abuse happened when she was between 7 and 10 years old when the siblings lived in Sleepy Hollow, New York. From 1976 to 1979, she claimed that Adam 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, she said.
During that time Miranda was 7 years old and abuse took place until she was 10 years, where Adam Savage was between 9 and 12 years old at the time. According to the Lawsuit, he would call himself the “raping blob,” force oral sex on her and penetrate her anally.
Furthermore, in the lawsuit, Miranda said in the suit she was “horrified and traumatized by the sexual abuse and assault her older brother inflicted upon her.”
Miranda Pacchiana revealed on her website about her experience “Yes, they believed me–but my family members still seemed determined to brush my trauma under the rug. Over time, I came to realize they viewed me as the problem for focusing on the abuse. Not the brother who had abused me. I was blindsided. Feeling more confused and alone than ever, I searched for resources to help make sense of my situation. I came up mostly empty-handed.”
Later, she added “When I first disclosed to my family that my brother had abused me as a child, I thought my whole world would change,” and wrote “I assumed my family members would share my desire to examine what had gone wrong in our home and pursue a path toward healing together. I was sadly mistaken.”
“In fact, their behaviors left me feeling as though the abuse didn’t really matter,” she continued. “Yes, they believed me — but my family members still seemed determined to brush my trauma under the rug. Over time, I came to realize they viewed me as the problem for focusing on the abuse. Not the brother who had abused me.”
According to Miranda they not talked for more than 20 years. The last time they spoke she confronted Savage about the alleged abuse. “I called him out for his callous attitude about the abuse and his apparent disregard for the damage he had caused, but he chose not to acknowledge or show any compassion for my pain,” she wrote.
Savage denied his sister’s allegations in a statement through 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,” Savage 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. I will fight this groundless and offensive lawsuit and work to put this to rest once and for all.”
Adam’s mother Karen Savage came to Adam’s defense Tuesday, she said “It makes me very sad to say this, but my daughter suffers from severe mental health challenges, and it’s devastating that she’s putting Adam and our entire family through this. Adam is a good man, and I support him completely.”
