She would like to be excused from this narrative.
There’s no “I” in Musk, according to one of the children of the world’s richest man.
Vivian Jenna Wilson has filed a petition in the Los Angeles County Superior Court to legally change her surname from Musk.
Aside from gender identity, Wilson cited “the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape, or form.”
Wilson, who is in the midst of transitioning, no longer wishes to be identified as Xavier. She also wants to instead adopt the last name of her mother, Justine, who announced her divorce from Musk in 2008.
Although the news follows the recent observation of Father’s Day, court documents show that Wilson had filed the request back on April 18—just a day after turning 18.
Wilson and her twin, Griffin, are the eldest of Musk’s seven living children.
The chief executive officer of SpaceX and Tesla previously criticized the use of preferred gender pronouns.
In 2020, Musk tweeted that “Pronouns suck” and “I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare.”
On both instances, his comments received backlash from social media users who said Musk had gender-related issues.
