Billionaire Elon Musk’s transgender daughter has petitioned a California court to change her name and gender, according to reports.
Vivian, 18, who was born Xavier, announced her decision to change her gender and famous surname in order to lose any association with the Tesla and SpaceX founder.
The official reason stated by Vivian in the petition, which was shared online, is: “Gender Identity and the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape, or form.”
Musk, the 50-year-old CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, is the world’s richest person with an estimated net worth of $214 billion.
The teenager is changing her full name from Xavier Alexander Musk to Vivian Jenna Wilson, taking her mother’s last name, because “she wants to be recognized as female,” TMZ reported.
Who is Vivian Jenna Wilson’s mother, Justine?
Justine Wilson, Vivian’s mother, and Musk separated in 2008.
While attending Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada, the two became friends.
The fantasy author, 49, had his first book, BloodAngel, released by Penguin Books in 2005.
She and Musk are the parents of six children: twins Vivian and Griffin, triplets Damian, Kai, and Saxon, born in 2006; and their first son, Nevada Alexander Musk, who tragically died at the age of 10 weeks in 2002.
Since then, Elon and Canadian musician Grimes have had two additional kids.
Their first child’s name was initially X A-12, but they had to change it to X AE A-XII to make it legal under California law by removing the and 12.
Exa Dark Siderael Musk was conceived through a surrogate in December 2021.
