Baby bombshell

Looking for hush money, are we? LA-based model Michael Girgenti, who worked with Kourtney Kardashian on a 944 magazine photo shoot in 2008, tells this week’s issue of In Touch that he believes he could be Mason Disick’s biological father. Girgenti details the alleged liaison, which he claims was almost exactly nine months before Mason’s birth.

The two hooked up while Kourtney was filming Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami, and she was on a break from Scott Disick.

“After he was born, and I saw photos of him,” the 26-year-old tells the magazine. “I began to wonder.”

Kourtney acknowledges working with Michael at the shoot but contends that Disick is the dad.

Girgenti is hoping for a DNA test.
