Elon Musk's daughter wants a name change to distance herself from the billionaire

The transgender daughter of Elon Musk has petitioned the Los Angeles County Superior Court to change her name formally.

The 18-year-old states in online paperwork that she desires a name change due to her gender identification and because she no longer wishes to be tied to her biological father.

Why now?

The daughter of Musk, who has a twin sibling, recently turned 18 years old.

A minor's name change application must bear the signatures of both parents.

She has formally petitioned the court to alter her gender from male to female and register her new name, according to online legal papers (which was redacted in the version of the documents shared online).

According to US media, her new surname will be Wilson, which was her mother's maiden name.

In 2008, Justine Wilson and Elon Musk divorced after their 2008 marriage.

Has Elon Musk responded?

Not publicly.

The court records did not include any additional information regarding Musk's relationship with his daughter.

Reuters solicited comments from both Tesla's media relations department and Musk's attorney, but neither answered quickly.

Musk proclaimed his support for the Republican Party, whose elected officials favor a slew of law reforms that would limit transgender rights in places across the United States, just a few weeks after the initial name change petition was filed.

What does this imply monetarily?

Currently, it is not totally obvious.

The teen states that "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" are the reasons for her name change.

There is no information in the disclosed records regarding whether the decision to change her name and separate herself from her rich father will result in her forfeiting any advantages or inheritance.

The founder of Tesla and SpaceX is projected to have a net worth of approximately US$213.9 billion ($306.98 billion).

The name change petition meeting is slated for later this week, but there is no sign that Musk would attend.

What about Musk's other children?

His 18-year-old twins are his oldest living children.

Griffin, the second twin, has made no public statements regarding his plans to disassociate himself from his father.

Musk also has adolescent triplets with Ms. Wilson and two children with Grimes.

Their youngest child  Exa Dark Sideræl was born earlier this year and X Æ A-Xii was born in 2020.
