Claims made that Kourtney Kardashian's son Mason Disick is not the son of her longterm boyfriend Scott Disick have been slammed by sources close to the reality TV star.
The mother of two is facing allegations from a US model, Michael Girgenti that he's the father of her first child Mason and is requesting a paternity test in a story in InTouch Weekly.
Responding to the claims, the source insisted it "couldn't be further from the truth," and is just the latest in a long line of allegations made about the family by the publication.
They said of Kourtney's history with the model who claims to have bedded her: "She met this guy ONCE at a shoot years ago and never saw him again."
The story in fact came out last year and are merely "recycling" the previous allegations made by Girgenti
In the interview Girgenti claims to have hooked up with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians beauty while on a photoshoot for 944 magazine in 2009, alleging the encounter took place nine months before Kourtney gave birth to her first child Mason.
“We started kissing, making out and touching each other. We were fooling around on the couch for a little while before I took her to the bedroom,” he told InTouch Weekly.
“I slipped her clothes off. She helped me undress, and we fell into bed.”
“After he was born and I saw photos of him,” he explained, “I began to wonder.”
Michael added that he was keen to be a father to Mason, if a DNA test proved he was the father: “I would definitely want to acknowledge Mason if he’s my kid.”

Scott Disick has always been publicly acknowledged as Mason's father, despite the couple splitting briefly before the now three year's old birth. Scott and Kourtney split in January 2009, before reconciling by the summer.
In August, Kourtney announced on the Today Show she was expecting her first baby, with Mason born in December, putting his conception date around March.
Lawyers for the Kardashians have always denied the paternity claims, claiming they are a “preposterous and an outrageous lie.”
“They did not exchange contact information. Since the August 20, 2008, on-set photo shoot, Kourtney never spoke with him, saw him nor met him again. Kourtney has never been alone with him, and Kourtney certainly has never physically/intimately been with Mr. Girgenti,” they added, according to the magazine.
Earlier this year Khloe Kardashian Odom hit out about stories reported in tabloids, naming InTouch specifically, for damaging stories about her family and their private lives.
A rep for Kourtney declined to comment on the claims.
