Billionaire businessman, Elon Musk is in the news today and this time, it is because his transgender son, Xavier Musk has renounced his last name as he is adamant to cut her legal ties to him and will no longer bear his last name.
Xavier Musk and his brother Griffin are a pair of twins born from the relationship the billionaire had with Canadian writer Justine Wilson.
However, at their mum’s request, both of them were conceived through in vitro fertilization and were born in 2004.
It is unknown what kind of emotional relationship Elon Musk had with the twins after separating from Justine, but apparently, it has not been rosy as made manifest in Xavier’s decision – the moment he reached the age of 18, he approached the authorities of the county of Los Angeles, California, to request a change of name and surname.
Upon discovering that his sexual orientation was different from the majority of his generation, since last April 18, the boy requested to be called Vivian Jenna Wilson and is just waiting for the authorities to grant it.
In the documents filed, she says she wants to be recognized as a woman, but the name change is not only related to her gender, because when referring to her father she stunned those who have ever heard of the billions of dollars that Elon Musk accumulates in his fortune.
“I no longer live with my biological father nor do I wish to be related to him in any way,” emphasized who is legally still called Xavier.
So far, Musk is yet to tender an official response to this development.
