Elon Musk’s 18-year-old child is seeking to change their gender from male to female.
Xavier Musk who recently turned 18, the age of consent in California, wants to be known as Vivian Jenna Wilson.

“I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.”

Musk has come under fire in recent months for social media comments which have been interpreted as transphobic.
In July 2020, Elon tweeted that “pronouns suck.”
Later that year, he also wrote, “I absolutely support trans, but all these pronouns are an esthetic nightmare.”
