Kourtney Kardashian slams son’s paternity rumors, shares DNA test
Kourtney Kardashian is firing back about paternity rumors regarding her 3-year-old son, Mason.
The eldest Kardashian sister, who stars in E!'s reality series “Keeping Up With the Kardashian,” released a statement to put an end to speculation that her firstborn’s father is not her longtime boyfriend, Scott Disick.
“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,” said the 34-year-old mother of two.
That “individual” happens to be model Michael Girgenti, who filed a paternity lawsuit last week claiming he slept with Kardashian after meeting her on a photo shoot in 2008. In court documents, Girgenti alleged that they struck up a texting relationship that turned sexual in 2009 when she allegedly messaged him that she was “on the outs” with boyfriend Disick and that they should hang out.
Girgenti said that they slept together and that nine months later she gave birth to Mason.
“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,” Kardashian said.
And to show proof of her claims, the reality TV star also procured a paternity test Monday and released the results to E! on Thursday, indicating with 99.9% probability that Disick is indeed Mason’s father.
So, ladies and gentleman, Lord Disick officially has a proven heir.
