Billionaire Elon Musk’s transgender child has filed for a gender identity name change in a bid to cut ties with his father.
“Gender identity and the fact that I no longer live or wish to be related to my biological father in any way,” Musk’s child explained as justification for the petition.
Musk’s child has applied for both a name change and a new birth certificate reflecting a new gender identity. The suit was filed in April in Los Angeles County Superior Court in Santa Monica.
Xavier Alexander Musk just turned 18 and asked the court to recognize the change of sex from male to female and register a new name, according to court documents.
