His first wife Justin Wilson gave birth to twin sons Xavier and Griffin, now 18
Elon Musk’s transgender daughter has filed a request to change her name in accordance with her new gender identity and because “I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.”
The former Xavier Alexander Musk, who recently turned 18, the age of consent in California, has asked the court to change her gender recognition from male to female and to register her new name, according to court documents available online through PlainSite.org.
Her new name was redacted in the online document. Her mother is Justine Wilson, who divorced Musk in 2008. There was no further explanation of the rift between Musk’s daughter and her father.
This is a tweet from Elon’s first wife and mother of Xavier – Vivian.
Vivian Jenna Wilson filed the petition to legally change names on April 18, a day after turning 18, court documents show.
Wilson cited gender identity as a reason for the name change and “the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.”
The Tesla Inc. chief executive has previously come under fire for criticizing the use of preferred pronouns for transgender and nonbinary people, including two 2020 tweets that read: “I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare” and “Pronouns suck.”
“One would hope this would be a wake-up call to Elon Musk, who has a history of making anti-trans and disrespectful comments particularly about pronoun usage. We hope that she finds support from other family members and knows she has a large community that supports her no matter what,” Cathy Renna, communications director of the National LGBTQ Task Force added.
In other tweets, Musk has scoffed at the idea of gender differences, tweeting on June 11 that “we are simultaneously being told that gender differences do not exist and that genders are so profoundly different that irreversible surgery is the only option.”
“Perhaps someone wiser than me can explain this dichotomy,” he added.
