18-year-old Elon Musk’s transgender daughter Xavier has filed a request to change her name in accordance with her new gender identity because “I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape, or form.”
The petition for both a name change and a new birth certificate reflecting her new gender identity was filed in April 2022 with the Los Angeles County Superior Court in Santa Monica.
It came to light recently in some online media reports. She says she wants her name to be Vivian Jenna Wilson.
In the docs, she says she wants to be recognized as female, but the name change isn’t just about her transitioning, there’s clearly a rift with her father Elon Musk.
Vivian lists her reason for the name 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.”
The hearing on her name change is set for Friday.
