Kourtney Kardashian has been dragged into a paternity lawsuit by a male model she did a photoshoot together with back in 2008, who is now claiming that he is the father of her 3-year old son Mason.
In the legal documents filed on Thursday, Michael Girgenti claims he met Kourtney during a photoshoot in August 2008 and immediately after, they kinda connected and started texting each other for some months.
Then around March 2009, Michael claims Kourtney contacted him and said ‘she wanted to hang’ since she and her boyfriend Scott Disick ‘are on the outs’. He then went on to describe the ‘unprotected vaginal sex’ they had, claiming that he ‘ejaculated inside’ her.
Michael goes on to claim that 9 months later Kourtney popped out Mason and he immediately saw a striking resemblance between him and the child and tried to contact her but to no avail. So he began a media merry-go-round to get her attention.
In the court docs Michael is seeking a paternity (DNA) test to be carried out on himself, Kourtney, Scott and Mason, and he also wants joint custody.
But in a statement released to TMZ, Kourtney’s lawyers dismissed the claim as ‘false and defamatory’. ‘This individual has been selling false and fabricated stories to the tabloids for years about Kourtney Kardashian and her son, Mason. Scott Disick is Mason’s father,’ said her attorney Todd Wilson. ‘We have not seen the reported court filing, but we are informed that this individual has been seeking to get paid to publish his ridiculous pleading. His claims are absurd and this is simply another shameful attempt to gain publicity and profit from fictional stories about my client.’
A judge has fixed a hearing for next month.
