Xavier Musk: Elon Musk’s child tells court she no longer wants to ‘be tied’ to her father
The petition was filed by Xavier Alexander Musk, who turned 18 earlier this year and filed the case in Los Angeles County Court shortly after. She asks that her name be changed to Vivian Jenna Wilson. Wilson is the surname of his mother, Justine Wilson, Musk’s ex-wife and mother of five of his seven children.
He has been criticized for some of his statements on Twitter regarding gender identity issues. For example in December 2020, he posted a since-deleted tweet that read “when you put it in your bio” next to a drawing of an 18th century soldier rubbing blood on his face in front of a pile of corpses and wearing a hat that read “I like to oppress.”
CNN Business was unable to reach Xavier Musk for comment and there were no comments from him in other reports on the filing.
