Kourtney Kardashian Releases DNA TestBy: Lindsay McCane - August 16, 2013
Male model, Michael Girgenti, filed legal documents this month claiming that he is the father of Kourtney Kardashian’s oldest child, Mason Disick, and requested a DNA test to confirm it.
“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,” Kourtney’s lawyer Todd Wilson stated. “His claims are absurd and this is simply another shameful attempt to gain publicity and profit from fictional stories about my client.”
Girgenti claims that he was involved in a sexual relationship with Kardashian while she was on the “outs” with her beau Scott Disick. Girgenti told “In Touch” magazine: “After Mason was born, and I saw photos of him, I began to wonder. I would definitely want to acknowledge Mason if he’s my kid, he deserves to know his real father.” He says that nine months after the sexual encounter with Kardashian, Mason was born.
Despite Girgenti’s claims, Kardashian released the results of a DNA test today, proving that Scott Disick is, in fact, Mason’s father.
“After three-and-a-half years of rumors and lies being spread by an individual I met briefly at a photo shoot, I am setting the record straight that Scott is Mason’s father. While it saddens me to have to address these ridiculous lies – especially when the truth was never in doubt – this story must be put to rest,” said Kardashian.
The paternity test, that was completed in an independent lab, states that Scott is 99.99% Mason’s father. However, even after hearing these results, Girgenti said that he will not back off of the lawsuit. He says that the results could have easily been forged, and that he wants to see the results from a court-ordered DNA test.
