Lena Dunham has defended her Girls' writer and producer Murray Miller in over rape allegations made against him.

Actress Aurora Perrineau, 23, claims writer Murray Miller raped her in 2012, and filed a complaint with West Hollywood police on Friday.

Dunham released a joint statement on Friday with her co-show runner Jenni Konner expressing support for Miller.

It read: "While our first instinct is to listen to every woman's story, our insider knowledge of Murray's situation makes us confident that sadly this accusation is one of the 3% of assault cases that are misreported every year.

"It is a true shame to add to that number, as outside of Hollywood women still struggle to be believed. We stand by Murray and this is all we'll be saying about this issue.'

Perrineau whose father, Harold, starred on the hit television show 'Lost' claims the alleged incident happened after meeting Miller with friends at the Standard Hotel in Downtown LA when she was just 17.

The group agreed to give him a lift before they all got out at Miller's home.

Perrineau alleged in a statement: "At some point, I woke up in Murray's bed naked. He was on top of me having sexual intercourse with me. At no time dud I consent to any sexual contact with Murray."

Miller, 40, has also produced 'King Of The Hill' and 'American Dad' has not commented on the allegations.
