Murray Miller, a producer on the show “Girls,” is being accused of raping a 17-year-old girl in 2012.

According to a report from The Wrap, actress Aurora Perrineau filed a report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department alleging that Miller raped her when she was 17 years old and he was 35 years old.

Perrineau wrote in the statement that at Murray’s home, she “woke up in Murray’s bed naked. He was on top of me having sexual intercourse with me. At no time did I consent to any sexual contact with Murray.”

Miller denies the reports, and his lawyer gave a statement to The Wrap, writing, “After being contacted several weeks ago by lawyers who – on Ms. Perrineau’s behalf – sought substantial monetary damages from him, Mr. Miller’s legal team gathered overwhelming evidence directly contradicting these false and offensive claims.”

It continues, “Only after her demands for money were rebuffed did Ms. Perrineau go to the police. Mr. Miller looks forward to sharing all evidence and information with any and all authorities seeking the truth in this matter.”

Perrineau’s mother denies that they ever sought money.
