Elon Musk’s transgender daughter has filed for a name change to reflect her new gender identity. She also requested to remove her last name to cut ties with her father.
The filing took place on April 18 in the Los Angeles County Superior Court in Santa Monica. The hearing is set for Friday.
The 18-year-old petitioned for a new birth certificate stating, “I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.”
Her birth-given name is Xavier Alexander Musk, but her requested name is Vivian Jenna Wilson. Her mother, Justine Wilson, was married to Musk until 2008. They had six children together.
Although Musk has stated he supports trans, he has come under scrutiny by the community for various comments on Twitter. One comment included, “All these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare.”
