According to a new report from “The Blast” the child of billionaire Elon Musk has filed to change her name and gender in an effort to distance herself from her father.
Per the report:
Xavier Alexander Musk, who has a twin named Griffin, turned 18 back in April. Almost immediately after her birthday, she filed a petition with the courthouse to change her name as she embraces her new identity as Vivian.
The Blast obtained the documents from the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles County at the time of their release but did not publish the documents right away to give Vivian time to come out on her own. However, the documents started making their way around Twitter on Saturday night, just ahead of Father’s Day. Her hearing is scheduled for this Friday.
One of Musk’s children is requesting to change her name to Vivian Jenna Wilson. She is also asking for the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles County to recognize her gender as female. The petition was filed on Monday, April 18.
Vivian listed the reason for the name change as not wanting to be associated with her biological father. In the court docs, she gave the following reason for her name change: “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.”
Musk has been accused of “transphobic” tweets when he criticized or mocked gender pronouns.
