What better way to celebrate Pride month than by changing your gender and name officially to what truly represents you. While this is not quite a scandal, it has reached almost every headline since the one doing it is one of Elon Musk's children who also declared that they do not want to be known for having ties with the famous Tesla CEO, surely a low blow for the billionaire.

Formerly known as Xavier Alexander Musk, the 18-year-old recently filed documents to change their name to Vivian Jenna Wilson (the maiden name of her mother, Justine Wilson) in order to recognize her gender as female.

In the filed documents, a brief but powerful reason was added. "Gender Identity and the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape, or form," she wrote in the petition.

According to NBC, documents with the approval of the judge were revealed. "There being no objections, the petition for change of name, recognition of change of gender, and issuance of new birth certificate is granted."

Vivian is the daughter of Justine Wilson and Elon Musk, she is one of the five kids Elon had with the Canadian author. Currently, Elon Musk is the father of eight kids.

The famous father has not issued a comment about Vivian but in the past, he declared that he supported transgender issues. Nevertheless, in 2020 he was criticized for sharing his comments about the use of pronouns. “I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare,” he tweeted at the time, adding, “Pronouns suck.”

Meanwhile, Vivian's mother Justine shared a brief exchange on her social media platform where she did not reveal who she was talking to, although everyone thought it was a conversation between her and Vivian.

The tweet read, "I had a weird childhood," my 18-year-old said to me. "I can't believe I'm as normal-seeming as I am." I said, "I'm very proud of you." "I'm proud of myself!" As an interesting side note, a day before the petition was filed Elon also shared a message I love all my kids so much."

All of this also comes after the scandal involving Grimes and the youngest child known. In an interview, Grimes, who shares X Æ A-Xii with the tycoon was caught trying to hide her second daughter and the eighth of his kids Exa Dark Sideræ.
