Elon Musk’s 18-year-old child has been granted a name and gender change, officially making her Vivian Jenna Wilson.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ on Thursday, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge approved the petition and requested that a new birth certificate be issued by the state to reflect the changes.
Vivian opted to drop Musk as her last name, opting for Wilson, which is her mother Justine’s maiden name.
On Tuesday it was revealed that Vivian – who was given the nickname Xavier Alexander Musk at birth – filed the petition in April, shortly after her 18th birthday.
TMZ reported that the teenager said the reason for her name change was “gender identity and the fact that I no longer live or wish to be related to my biological father.” [Elon] in any way, shape or form.

“I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an aesthetic nightmare,” he said.
