Elon Musk’s daughter testifies in court that she no longer wants
Elon Musk’s daughter testifies in court that she no longer wants to be’related’ to her father. Elon Musk’s daughter has asked a California court to accept her new name and gender, claiming that she no longer wants to be linked to her famous and wealthy father “in any manner, shape, or form.”
Musk’s daughter turned 18 earlier this year and filed the paperwork with a Los Angeles county court shortly after. Her legal name will be changed to Vivian Jenna Wilson, she demands. Justine Wilson, Musk’s ex-wife and mother of five of his seven children, has the surname Wilson.
With a net worth of $214 billion, Musk, the CEO of Tesla (TSLA) and SpaceX, is the richest person on the planet.
He’s been chastised on Twitter for several of his comments on gender identification issues. For example, in December 2020, he tweeted “when you use he/him in your bio” alongside a painting of an 18th century soldier wiping blood on his face in front of a mound of dead people and wearing a cap that stated “I love to oppress,” which has since been deleted.
“I completely support trans, but all these pronouns are an aesthetic nightmare,” Musk responded on Twitter in response to criticism of the tweet. He also said that the Human Rights Campaign has given Tesla a perfect score as one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality.” In HRC’s opinion, Tesla still has a perfect score.
Elon Musk’s daughter has also stated on Twitter that in the 2024 presidential race, he is leaning toward supporting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. DeSantis recently campaigned for and passed legislation, dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill by detractors, that restricts talks of homosexuality and transgender problems in public schools.
The filing of Musk’s daughter was first reported on social media over the weekend, and then in reports on celebrity news site The Blast and the Los Angeles Times on Monday. The matter has a hearing scheduled for this Friday.
Musk sent out Father’s Day greetings early Sunday, followed by another tweet that said, “I love all my kids very much.”
Vivian Jenna Wilson could not be reached for comment by CNN Business, and she was not included in any other publications regarding the filing.
