Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s transgender daughter has applied for a name change, saying that she will give up the name her father Musk passed on to him and take on a completely new name, TMZ reported on the 20th (local time).
According to reports, 18-year-old Javier Musk recently applied to Los Angeles County authorities to change her legal sexual identity from male to female and change her name to Vivian Jenna Wilson.
Javier is one of five sons Musk had with writer Justin Wilson. Musk and Wilson married her first in 2000, but she split in 2008.
The media reported that Javier made her wish to be recognized as a woman and suggested a dispute with her father as the reason for the change of name.
In a document submitted to the authorities, Javier said, “I don’t want to be associated in any way with my biological father,” and that he would give up his father’s surname, Musk, and choose his mother’s adult, Wilson.
Musk has never publicly commented on his relationship with Javier. However, Musk tweeted in December 2020 that while he supported the transgender community, he complained that all terms referring to sexual minorities were a “nightmare” to him.
