Elon Musk‘s transgender daughter has requested a name change to represent her new gender identity and the fact that “I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any manner, shape, or form.”
Elon Musk’s daughter filed the petition in April
In April, she filed a petition with the Los Angeles County Superior Court in Santa Monica for a name change and a new birth certificate reflecting her new gender identification. It was recently brought to light in various internet media outlets.
According to court documents available online through PlainSite.org, the former Xavier Alexander Musk, who recently turned 18, the legal age of consent in California, has sought the court to change her gender recognition from male to female and to register her new name.
In the online document, her new name was redacted. Her mother is Justine Wilson, who divorced Musk in 2008.
Elon Musk expressed his support for the Republican Party in May, approximately a month after the name and gender change document was submitted, despite the fact that the Republican Party’s elected members support plenty of laws that would restrict transgender rights in places around the country.
Musk commented on the issue of transgender persons choosing their preferred pronouns in 2020, tweeting, “I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare.”
