Elon Musk, the world’s richest man and CEO of Tesla, is resurfaced in the news. This time it was caused by his transgender daughter. His daughter has changed her name to Vivian Jenna Wilson and she has applied to the court to show her new gender identity through a new birth certificate. She says she no longer lives with her biological father and does not want to have any contact with him.
Musk’s daughter’s first male name is Xavier Alexander Musk, and she recently turned 18. Her mother’s name is Justin Wilson, who divorced Elon Musk in 2008. Xavier was a man some time ago and later became a woman. According to media reports, Xavier wants to change her name to Vivian and change her father’s surname to her mother’s surname.
The name change was a petition filed in April Musk’s daughter filed a lawsuit in April in a Los Angeles county court in Santnica for a new birth certificate reflecting her new gender identity.
Musk expressed his support for the Republican Party in May, about a month after filing his daughter’s name and gender reassignment documents in court. The incident came after its elected representatives supported laws restricting transgender sexual rights in states across the country.
It is not clear why the daughter publicly disliked her father. Musk has not yet made an official statement and it is not clear if he knew about Vivian’s plan before filing the lawsuit
