Elon Musk’s son Xavier Alexander Musk Files to change Name and Gender

Elon Musk's son has announced both a gender identity change and her intention to change her full name in new court documents. 

The documents say he wants to cut familial ties with her billionaire father and will use Wilson is her mother Justine’s last name.

After turning 18 in April, one of Elon Musk’s sons ditched the famous last name of his father and changed his full name.

Xavier Alexander Musk, born male, filed papers in the superior court of California, Los Angeles, on April 18. 

One day after their birthday on April 17 he filed to change their name to Vivian Jenna Wilson. The change reflects their new gender identity as a female.

The requested formal change 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.”

It is unclear what is behind Xavier's rejection of their father, in such a public way. Musk has yet to comment.

Musk has been vocal on various transgender issues and has been branded anti-gay and anti-transphobia in several rows.

Last year he complained about people using their own pronouns and said he was a fan of Florida governor Ron DeSantis who has been condemned by the LGBTQ community.
