Elon Musk’s 18 year-old son has filed court documents seeking to legally change their gender from male to female and lose his last name, stating: ‘I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.’
Vivian claims that part of the reason that she wants to change her name is to distance herself from her biological father, who has been accused of having transphobic views over the past several years.
In one July 2020 tweet, Musk tweeted “pronouns suck,” but deleted the tweet after his then-partner, Canadian musician Grimes, confronted him about the tweet.
Xavier Musk, 18, filed the paperwork in Santa Monica, California, on April 18, seeking to be known as Vivian Jenna Wilson. The transgender teenage explained that she wishes to take her mother’s last name to distance herself from her dad.
She has not commented on whether she receives financial support from her dad – whose $213 billion dollar fortune makes him the world’s richest man – and whether her disgust at his antics extends to refusing any further handouts.
Musk was married to Vivian’s mother, Canadian author Justine Wilson, from 2008.
She gave birth to a son, Nevada, in 2002 who died after 10 days of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
