Michael Girgenti files paternity suit against Kourtney Kardashian

kourtney-kardashian-paternity-michael-girgenti.jpgModel Michael Girgenti started making waves regarding the paternity of Kourtney Kardashian's son, Mason, back in March. Girgenti claims he and Kourtney met during a photo shoot in August 2008 (pictured, right) and then hooked up in March 2009 when she was broken up with Scott Disick. Nine months later, she gave birth to Mason.

At the time of Girgenti's first claims, Kourtney's lawyer said, "Kourtney has never been alone with him, and Kourtney certainly has never physically/intimately been with Mr. Girgenti," but now the male model has taken the next step and reportedly filed a paternity suit against Kardashian, according to TMZ.

The site says that Girgenti wants a paternity test done and if Mason is revealed to be his son, he wants joint custody. He filed the suit in the Los Angeles County Superior Court and a judge has set a hearing for next month.

Shawn Holley
, Kourtney's lawyer, has sent a letter to Girgenti saying that his claims are "false and defamatory."
