Michael Girgenti, the male model claiming he's the real father of Kourtney Kardashian's 3-year-old son Mason -- and seeking joint custody in a paternity suit filed Thursday in Los Angeles -- is only trying to heighten his profile and fatten his wallet, the reality star's attorney said in a statement Friday.
Kourtney's lawyer Todd Wilson said Girgenti "has been selling false and fabricated stories to the tabloids for years about Kourtney Kardashian and her son, Mason," noting that "Scott Disick is Mason’s father.
"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," Wilson said.
Wilson called Girgenti's claim -- that he fathered the boy after a roll-in-the-hay with Kourt in March 2009 at his Glendale, Calif. apartment -- "absurd," and dubbed the suit "simply another shameful attempt to gain publicity and profit from fictional stories about my client."
As we previously reported, Girgenti claims he had "unprotected vaginal sex" with the reality star, and "ejaculated inside her vagina," in court docs filed Thursday, according to reports.
