Artist Kate Gorney issued a statement on behalf of herself and husband, Silicon Valley actor T.J. Miller, after an anonymous source accused the comedian of violent sexual abuse in a report published by The Daily Beast Tuesday.

Gorney slammed Sarah, the name used to identify the alleged victim, saying the allegations were false and the accuser wanted nothing more than to ruin Miller and Gorney's marriage.

Their full statement was posted to Gorney's Twitter account:

"We met this woman over a decade ago while studying together in college, she attempted to break us up back then by plotting for over a year before making contradictory claims and accusations. She attempted to discredit both of our voices and use us against one another by trying to portray Kate to be a continuous abuse victim of T.J. (further efforts to hurt the two of us). She was asked to leave our university comedy group because of worrisome and disturbing behavior, which angered her immensely. She then became fixated on our relationship, and began telling people around campus, 'I'm going to destroy them" and 'I'm going to ruin him.'

"We are confident that a full consideration of accounts from and since that time will shed light and clarity on the true nature of not only this person's character, but also on the real facts of the matter. (See the e-mails referenced).

"We stand together in stating this is nothing more than an unfortunate resurgence of her lies designed to wreak havoc on two happily married people in the public eye. She began again to circulate rumors online once our relationship became public.

"Sadly she is now using the current climate to bandwagon and launch these false accusation again. It is unfortunate that she is choosing this route as it undermines the important movement to make women feel safe coming forward about legitimate claims against real known predators.

"We stand together and will not allow this person to take advantage of a serious movement toward gender equality by allowing her to use this moment to muddy the water with an unrelated personal agenda. We feel we all have an obligation now more than ever to prevent people from using reporters to spin lies into headlines, and focus instead on what is real.

"We both champion and continue to stand up for people everywhere who have truly suffered injustice [and are] seeking to have justice brought into their lives."

Gorney added a picture of Miller holding her.
