The 18-year-old has asked to be recognised as female and have the name Vivian Jenna Wilson.

She was known as Xavier Alexander Musk.

The petition for both a name change and a new birth certificate was filed with the Los Angeles County Superior Court in Santa Monica.

Her request is set out in court documents filed in April, which have only recently come to light.

There was no further detail of the apparent rift between Mr Musk's daughter and her father.


On Father's Day, the entrepreneur tweeted that he loves all his children.

Details are skimpy, all the articles about this look like they come from a wire service. But it could be because of his politics,

He has been vocal on various transgender issues, and has been branded anti-gay in several rows. Last year he complained about people using their own pronouns.

The court document for his daughter's name and gender change was filed a month before he publicly declared his support for the Republican Party, having previously voted Democrat.

He has also said he is a fan of Ron DeSantis, the Republican Florida governor who introduced the so-called "Don't Say Gay" bill. This controversial piece of legislation restricts schools from teaching students about sexual orientation and gender issues, with teachers opening themselves up to lawsuits should they fail to comply.

Her new name is Vivian Jenna Wilson and took her mother’s maiden name.

... 'Very Proud of You!!!'

Elon Musk's ex-wife is squarely in the corner of their daughter, saying she's proud of the 18-year-old ... amid her now very public rift with her father.

Justine Wilson, a novelist who was married to Elon from 2000 to 2008, weighed in on Vivian's legal filing to have her gender identity changed to female, and to change her full name ... including dropping her dad's famous last name.

She tweeted a convo she recently had with one of her children, and while Vivian has a twin brother, Griffin, the timing makes it pretty clear this was a chat with Vivian.

Justine says her 18-year-old said, "I can't believe I'm as normal-seeming as I am," after having what she calls a "weird childhood." Justine replied, "I'm very proud of you," to which Vivian said, "I'm proud of myself!"

The proud mother's tweet dropped right after the story broke about Vivian's desire to change her name to Vivian Jenna Wilson. What's interesting about Justine's very public support is that Vivian's made it clear she's got beef with Elon.

Strengthening The Cord

On the other end of the spectrum is a supportive parent...
“I ask them to sing with me all the time, but they won't. So this is a very special occasion,” Lopez said.

Superstar Jennifer Lopez recently performed with her child Emme, 14, and used gender-neutral pronouns during the performance, which many on social media saying it seems to be Lopez affirming Emme’s pronouns.

Emme, along with their twin Max, are Lopez’s children with her ex-husband Marc Anthony.

The recent duet wasn’t the first time audiences saw Lopez and Emme sing together. Emme also performed with Lopez during the latter’s Super Bowl performance in 2020 with Shakira.

Video of the performance at the L.A. Dodgers Foundation’s Blue Diamond Gala was posted to TikTok, and has been viewed more than 2 million times.

Sadly the announcer uses gender terms to describe J.Lo nibbling.

Jennifer Lopez could offer Elon Musk a lesson in kids’ LGBTQ acceptance

When it comes to being supportive of transgender and nonbinary children, Elon Musk could learn a lot from Jennifer Lopez.
Musk, who tweeted in 2020 that he “absolutely support trans,” but that “all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare,” is being legally rejected by his 18-year-old transgender daughter, who wants nothing more to do with her famous father.

As news circulated that the world’s richest man had been disowned by one of his children, another famous parent, Jennifer Lopez, was being praised for taking a different approach to LGBTQ pronoun uses, especially when it comes to her own child.

Before a duet with her 14-year-old, Emme Maribel Muñiz, at the recent LA Dodgers Blue Diamond Gala, Lopez introduced her child using the gender neutral pronouns they and them, CNN and other outlets reported.
Family support means so much to a child, it makes all the different in the success of their transistion.
