AceShowbiz - Elon Musk may soon need to make amend to his will. One of his children wants to cut all ties with him by dropping the billionaire's famous last name, so it has been reported by various news outlets.
Xavier Alexander Musk, who was born male, filed papers in superior court of California, Los Angeles on April 18, one day after their birthday on April 17, to legally change their name to Vivian Jenna Wilson. The change reflects their new gender identity as a female and hints at a rift with their father.
In the court documents, Vivian states the reason for the requested formal change as "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." Vivian wishes to adopt her mother Justine's last name instead.
Future proceedings on the case are scheduled for June 24 at the Santa Monica, Los Angeles courthouse.
Neither Elon nor Vivian has publicly spoken about their relationship. However, the SpaceX founder has seemingly responded to Vivian's request to change her name. On the same day his teen child filed the papers, the 50-year-old tweeted, "I love all my kids so much."
Elon has also expressed his stance on the transgender issue. Back in July 2020, he tweeted, "Pronouns suck." However, in December of the same year, he explained, "I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are esthetic nightmare."
Vivian and her twin Griffin Musk are the eldest of Elon's seven living children. His first child, a son named Nevada Alexander, died of sudden infant death syndrome at just 10 weeks old in 2002. Nevada, Vivian and Griffin's mom is Canadian fantasy author Justine Wilson. The former couple, who got married in 2000 before their divorce in 2008, also shares triplets Kai, Saxon and Damian, who were born in 2006. Elon also has a child, a son named X AE A-XII, with his former girlfriend Grimes.
