Kourtney Kardashian Speaks Out On Paternity Suit: ‘Scott Is Mason’s Father’
Kourtney Kardashian is speaking out for the first time since rumors surfaced about her 3-year-old son Mason’s paternity.
“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 mother of two said Thursday. “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.”
Male model Michael Girgenti long asserted that he is her son’s biological father and even filed a paternity suit last week asking for joint custody, according to TMZ, claiming he slept with Kardashian after meeting her at a photo shoot in 2008.
“This individual has been selling false and fabricated stories to the tabloids for years about Kourtney Kardashian and her son, Mason. Scott Disick is Mason’s father,” Kourtney’s attorney, Todd Wilson, told TMZ.
“We are informed that this individual has been seeking to get paid to publish his ridiculous pleading,” Wilson added. “His claims are absurd and this is simply another shameful attempt to gain publicity and profit from fictional stories about my client.”
