Elon Musk children are once again under the spotlight after Musk’s transgender daughter requested a name change to reflect her gender identity, and cutting off her ties with her father.
Elon Musk’s daughter filed documents in the California court that stated that she no longer wants to “live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form”.
Named Xavier Alexander Musk at birth, Musk’s daughter petitioned the California court for a name change and a new birth certificate that reflected her gender identity. Her current name was redacted in the online document.
The founder and CEO of Tesla, Inc and founder of The Boring Company Elon Musk is the father of seven children. Musk and his ex-wife Justine Wilson have five children together and Musk has two children with the musician Grimes.
