Male Model Says He's The Father Of Kourtney Kardashian's Son, Wants Custody

Kourtney Kardashian has long stayed in the public eye because she's a Kardashian, and she's remained relevant in the family's ongoing drama because people kind of can't believe she stays with that self-absorbed d-bag, Scott Disick. The reason she lets him stick around, we've all assumed, is because he's the father of her two kids.

But now, a male model is coming out and challenging everything we've come to believe is true: Michael Girgenti says that he and Kourtney boned down exactly nine months before her oldest son was born, and that he's actually the toddler's dad. He graphically states, according to TMZ, that he "ejaculated inside [Kourtney's] vagina."

And he's not stopping there. Girgenti has now filed a paternity lawsuit asking for joint custody of three-year-old Mason.

In the court documents, he explains that he met Kardashian on a photo shoot in 2008, then they started up a texting relationship. After a few months, he alleges, she told him she and Disick were "on the outs," and that she wanted to meet up.

That, he says, is when the tryst went down.

Looking at photos of Girgenti from the New York Daily News, it is hard not to wonder if he might be Mason's father—the resemblance is uncanny. No word yet on whether a paternity test will be administered, but rest assured that we'll keep you posted
