Scott Disick was proved to be Mason's father after Kourtney Kardashian voluntary submitted to a DNA test, but Michael Girgenti claims that the paternity results could easily have been forged.
Kardashian put yearlong rumors to rest that Girgenti was the biological father of her 3-year-old son Mason by releasing the results to a DNA paternity test. According to lab doctors, the DNA test determining Scott Disick to be the father was 99.99% accurate, meaning that Girgenti's allegations of fathering Mason are untrue.
Yet, the male model is still pushing his paternity lawsuit against Kourtney Kardashian, demanding a court-ordered DNA test under the pretense that the released results may have been fabricated. If Girgenti's paternity lawsuit still stands, he will ask a judge to grant him joint custody of Mason in the event that the new test shows he's the real father.
Upon releasing the evidence proving Disick to be Mason's father, Kardashian slammed Girgenti for perpetuating what she called "ridiculous lies" for years. "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. "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," the reality star added.
It was the first time Kardashian has acknowledged Girgenti's claims that Disick isn't Mason's father. However, attorneys and reps for the 34-year-old, who is also mom to 1-year-old daughter Penelope, firmly denied Girgenti's story. "This individual has been selling false and fabricated stories to tabloids for years about Kourtney Kardashian, and her son, Mason," Kardashian's attorney Todd Wilson said following Girgenti's paternity lawsuit filing.
"His claims are absurd and this is simply another shameful attempt to gain publicity and profit from fictional stories about my client," the lawyer added. On the contrary, Girgenti maintains that he bears a remarkable resemblance to the brunette boy, and argues that Kardashian delivered Mason exactly nine months after their illicit affair. Fiercely denying that Disick is Mason's father, the male model has allegedly sent Kardashian text messages and letters begging to settle the paternity dispute.
"My attentions [sic] are not to hurt the family you've created with Scott. But at the same time, Mason deserves to know the truth," Girgenti claims to have wrote in a letter to Kardashian. "I assure you I don't take being a father lightly. I will be a great father to Mason," he added. Kardashian's camp has yet to respond to Girgenti's new claims that the DNA test results were forged.
