Paternity testing is accurate and reliable and has become very much the standard means accepted for determining the true paternity of a child. Paternity testing can be as accurate as 99.99% in establishing whether the tested father is true biological father of a child and many celebrities from all over the world have sought this test to solve the issue. Kourtney Kardashian has earlier this year been involved in a paternity query which required DNA testing to be solved.

At the beginning of 2009, rumour was out that Kourtney’s son, Mason Dash, may, in actual fact, not have been fathered by the man she had been dating long term- Scott Disick. It seems in fact that someone she worked with on a photo shoot may actually be the biological father and in fact, the fellow, Michael Girgenti has asked for a DNA paternity test. The guy says it was just one night of passion that the two enjoyed and that this, however, means that he could very well be the father. The two are said to have stayed in touch via email for a period of a couple of months.

Speculations and curiosity regarding such issues for a celebrity socialite like Kourtney Kardashian are of course, unsurprisingly, rife.

The suggestion of a paternity test was put forward by Michael Girgenti and his hope was that Scott Disick would consent to the test.

Of course, one can easily work by process of elimination when they are sure the paternity test involves more than one father. In the case of Kourtney Kardashian, a paternity test with anyone of the two potential fathers could tell which one it is- if just one father is test and the result is an exclusion of paternity, then she can safely conclude that it must be the other father. Should there have been anymore illicit liaisons than establishing paternity any become complex especially if putative fathers cannot be tracked down or are unavailable for the test for any other reasons.

Of course, legally there may be certain issues like whose name to put on the birth certificate and whether the father is willing to take on his paternal responsibilities. Given the fact that Girgenti proposed the paternity DNA test suggests that he is eager to act as a father to the child.

Paternity testing is accurate a paternity DNA test will undoubtedly solve the issue in the Kourtney Kardashian case.
