Kourtney Kardashian is finally speaking out and putting the kibosh on the paternity lawsuit filed by male model Michael Girgenti, who claimed to be the father of her son, Mason. The 34-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star just obtained a paternity test that confirms Scott Disick is the father of three-year-old Mason, reports E! News. And she issued the following statement:
- "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."
Kourtney's attorney Todd Wilson originally made a statement, saying, "This individual has been selling false and fabricated stories to the tabloids for years about Kourtney Kardashian and her son, Mason.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." The lawyer went on to say, "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. His claims are absurd and this is simply another shameful attempt to gain publicity and profit from fictional stories about my client."
