Billionaire Elon Musk’s transgender daughter has petitioned a California court to change her name and gender, according to reports.
Vivian, 18, who was born Xavier, announced her decision to change her gender and famous surname in order to lose any association with the Tesla and SpaceX founder.
The official reason stated by Vivian in the petition, which was shared online, is: “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, the 50-year-old CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, is the world’s richest person with an estimated net worth of $214 billion.
The teenager is changing her full name from Xavier Alexander Musk to Vivian Jenna Wilson, taking her mother’s last name, because “she wants to be recognized as female,” TMZ reported.
Who is Elon Musk’s daughter Vivian Jenna Wilson?

On Friday, June 24, 2022, there will be a hearing on her request.
