Elon Musk’s Child Petitions to Change Last Name, Citing Desire to Cut Ties with Tesla CEO


One of Elon Musk’s children has filed a request to change their name, to cut ties with their famous father.

According to court documents, Vivian Jenna Wilson filed a petition with Los Angeles County Superior Court to legally change names a day after turning 18-years-old.

Musk’s transgender daughter claimed gender identity as one of the reasons for the name change, as well as:

“the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.”

The 18-year-old is one of Musk’s five children with ex-wife Justine Wilson. The couple filed for a divorce in 2008.

The Tesla CEO has been under scrutiny in the past for criticizing the use of pronouns for transgender and nonbinary people. The 50-year-old tweeted:

‘I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare’
