Kourtney Kardashian Paternity Suit: Michael Girgenti Says He’s Mason’s Father
Kourtney Kardashian was hit with a paternity suit on Thursday when model Michael Girgenti made a filing in a Los Angeles court suggesting that he was Mason Dash Disick’s biological father.
Girgenti alleges that he and Kardashian had a sexual encounter nine months prior to Mason’s birth, and that he — not Scott Disick — is the 3-year-old’s father. He claims that he had a tryst with Kardashian after an August 2008 photo shoot. He’s asking to have joint custody of the child, according to TMZ.
The lawsuit is not the first time that Girgenti has voiced his belief that he’s Mason’s dad. Back in March, Girgenti recounted his alleged encounter with Kardashian, which he claims happened on the third time the pair hung out alone following the 944 magazine photo shoot to InTouch Weekly. “After [Mason] was born and I saw photos of him,” Girgenti told the magazine, “I began to wonder.”
Though Kardashian admits to working with Girgenti, she has maintained that their relationship never left the photo shoot. “Since the August 20, 2008, on-set photo shoot, Kourtney never spoke with him, saw him nor met him again,” said Kardashian’s lawyer following Girgenti’s initial allegations. “Kourtney has never been alone with him, and Kourtney certainly has never physically/intimately been with Mr. Girgenti.”
Neither Kardashian nor her lawyer has yet to release a public statement about Girgenti’s paternity suit, which will require a DNA test.
