From Male Model After He Demands Court Order DNA Test To Prove He Is Mason’s Father
Kourtney Kardashian is facing a lawsuit from a model who claims he is her son’s biological father.
Michael Girgenti alleges he had unprotected sex with the reality TV star after they met on a photoshoot in August 2008 and has filed paperwork at Los Angeles County Superior Court in a bid to get joint custody of her three-year-old child, Mason.
According to gossip website TMZ.com, Michael wants the judge to order DNA tests for Kourtney, Mason and her long-term boyfriend Scott Disick, Mason – who is father to her daughter Penelope, 13 months.
A hearing has been set for next month.
The lawsuit documents the alleged relationship between Kourtney and Michael, which he claims heated up in March 2009, when she told him her relationship with Scott was ‘on the outs’ and ‘she wanted to hang.’
The reality star was seen outside her lawyer’s office on Wednesday, no doubt seeking advice over the embarrassing and upsetting lawsuit.
Michael claims they had full sex and as soon as she had given birth to Mason – born on 14 December 2009 – he tried contacting her.
The allegations first came to light in March earlier this year when he 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.’
A legal representative for the Kourtney & Kim Take Miami star previously branded the Chicago native’s allegations ‘preposterous and an outrageous lie’.
So it must have come as a surprise that the model has now filed papers with the court.
In addition to son Mason, the couple – who have been dating on and off for seven years – have a baby daughter, Penelope Scotland, together.
This is not the first time the extremely wealthy Kardashian family has been confronted by allegations of paternity.
Kourtney’s younger sister Khloe, 28, has had to regularly deny rumours that their late father Robert Kardashian was not her biological father.
Their half-sister Kylie Jenner, 15, also recently hit back at reports that Bruce Jenner may not be her real father.
The reality star certainly looked like she had a lot on her mind as she chatted with boyfriend Scott in on Wednesday.
The 34-year-old who looked chic in a monochrome striped dress and espadrilles, certainly seemed preoccupied as she chatted to Scott.
The flats bore the distinctive Chanel logo, and co-ordinated well with her chic quilted Chanel bag.
With her hair tied back in a bun and a slick of red lipstick, it was clear Kourtney had made an effort.
Scott however looked far from his usual dapper self in a multi-coloured chequered shirt, blue shorts and leather shoes.
The two left children Mason, three, and one-year-old Penelope at home for their date.
And they certainly seemed to be enjoying some alone time, with Kourtney writing on Twitter ‘California love’.
Just last week it was reported that Kourtney was pregnant with her third child.
She did not comment on the rumours, although was later seen eating sushi with her family – a food type pregnant women are advised to steer clear of due to the raw fish ingredients.
