London, Europe Brief News – Elon Musk’s 18-year-old daughter reportedly filed to change their name months ago in an ongoing effort to cut ties with the Tesla CEO.
The teenager, who was given the name Xavier Musk at birth, legally requested their moniker be changed to Vivian Jenna Wilson.
The name Wilson is the maiden name of the teen’s mom, Justine Musk.
The documents were reportedly filed in April, shortly after their 18th birthday. An alleged screenshot has been circulating via Twitter.
The paperwork lists their 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 will take place next Friday.
There has been no comment from Elon Musk’s about his daughter’s decision to distance herself from him.
He has been vocal on various transgender issues, and has been branded anti-gay in several rows. Last year he complained about people using their own pronouns.
The court document for his daughter’s name and gender change was filed a month before he publicly declared his support for the Republican Party, having previously voted Democrat.
He has also said he is a fan of Ron DeSantis, the Republican Florida governor who introduced the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill. This controversial piece of legislation restricts schools from teaching students about sexual orientation and gender issues, with teachers opening themselves up to lawsuits should they fail to comply.
In 2020 Elon Musk wrote on Twitter “Pronouns suck” before deleting it. He then said: “I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an aesthetic nightmare.”
