One of the children of Elon Musk, the wealthy boss of Tesla and SpaceX, who has become transgender wants to change his name to cut all ties with his father.
A transgender daughter of Elon Musk has filed a formal request to change her surname along with her gender to sever all ties with her father. Born Xavier Alexander Musk, she asks to be called Vivian Jenna Wilson so that her name matches her gender.
“I no longer live with my biological father and no longer want to be associated with him in any form whatsoever”, writes the young woman to explain her request filed the day after her 18e anniversary.
She wishes to take the maiden name of her mother, divorced from Elon Musk in 2008. The request was filed in April in a court in Santa Monica, California, but has just been revealed by several American media.
Eight children with two different wives
The richest man in the world had a total of eight children: six with Justine Musk (née Wilson) in the 2000s, one of whom died a few weeks after birth, and, more recently, two with musician Grimes.
The Tesla and SpaceX boss, also in the process of buying Twitter, has in the past written posts on the social network criticizing the fact that transgender or non-binary people ask to be identified by specific pronouns, including this tweet dating from December 2020: “I absolutely support trans people but all these pronouns are aesthetic nightmares”.

Elon Musk however likes originality in terms of writing since his last two children are named Exa Dark Sideræl and X Æ A-12.
