Elon Musk’s son is assuming a new name in order to distance himself from his father.
In April 2022, Xavier Alexander Musk, who has a twin named Griffin, turned 18.
Xavier filed a petition with the courthouse to change his gender and name to Vivian almost immediately after his birth.
The Blast got the documents when they were released from the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles County, but did not publish them straight away to give Vivian time to come out on her own.
However, the documents have started making their way around Twitter.
Vivian’s hearing is scheduled for this Friday, June 24.
Xavier Alexander Musk is requesting to change her name to Vivian Jenna Wilson. She is also asking for the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles County to recognize her gender as female. The petition was filed on Monday, April 18.
Vivian listed the reason for the name change as not wanting to be associated with her biological father.
The document states: “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.
Elon Musk married Canadian author Justine Wilson in January 2000 and they welcomed twin sons – Griffin and Xavier – in 2004.
In 2008, the pair filed for divorce. They still share custody of their five children
