Elon Musk’s daughter has launched a petition to have her father’s last name and gender identity changed.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s transgender daughter, who just turned 18, wishes to be known as Vivian Jenna Wilson. Xavier Alexander Musk was the name she was given at birth.

Vivian Jenna Wilson’s petition in Los Angeles County cites two grounds for Musk’s name change from Xavier. This includes her desire to want nothing to do with her biological father. Her father, a multibillionaire, has five children, including Vivian, with his ex-wife, Canadian writer Justine Wilson.

The legal petition for his daughter’s name and gender change was submitted a month before Elon openly proclaimed his support for the Republican Party.

Elon Musk has also declared he admires Ron DeSantis, the Florida governor who proposed the “Don’t Say Gay” statute.

The controversial bill limits schools from educating pupils about sexual orientation and gender diversity, with instructors putting themselves at risk for lawsuits if they don’t comply.

Musk has yet to officially speak on the issue, but in 2020 he tweeted on his social media that he supports the trans community, but that pronouns are an “aesthetic nightmare”.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk replied to the media for writing a piece about his daughter and her identity in the Daily Beast.

 “She does not want to be a public figure. I think it is important to defend her right to privacy. Please don’t out someone against their will—it’s not right.”

After Justine Wilson and Elon Musk split, she raised their children away from the public eye. On the other hand, she recently gained attention for what appeared to be a tweet regarding the Amber Heard-Johnny Depp libel dispute, in which Elon Musk was allegedly involved.
