Justine Musk, Elon’s ex-wife and the mother of his five oldest children, said she was ‘proud’ of her 18-year-old
Elon Musk’s ex-wife Justine says she is ‘very proud’ of her 18-year-old for submitting paperwork to change her name and gender from Xavier Musk to Vivian Jenna Wilson.
Musk and Justine were married from 2000 to 2008 and share five children, including 18-year-old Vivian.
On April 18, Xavier filed paperwork in Santa Monica, saying, “I no longer live with or want to in any way, shape or form related to my biological father.”
She ticked ‘feminine’ when asked what her preferred gender was.
Musk has not yet commented on the paperwork. In a tweet on Monday night, Justine said, “I had a strange childhood,” my 18-year-old told me.
“I can not believe I am as normal as I am.” “I said, ‘I’m very proud of you.’ “I’m proud of myself!” ‘
Justine’s tweet comes as controversial remarks from the past by Elon about transgender issues that have resurfaced in light of the announcement.
The billionaire has previously joked with the pregnant man’s emoji, and he said, ‘Pronouns suck.’
Vivian submitted the paperwork three days after her 18th birthday, but it only became public on Monday, the day after Father’s Day. Neither she nor her twin brother Griffin have been seen in public recently.

Musk was married to Vivian’s mother, Canadian author Justine Wilson, from 2000 to 2008. Their first son, Nevada, was born in 2002 and died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) at 10 weeks. The couple had two sons – Xavier and Griffin – and triplet boys: Damian, Kai and Saxon, now 16.
The five adolescents have kept a fairly low profile, despite their father’s common fad. Musk also has two other children, X Æ A-Xii and Exa Dark Sideræl, who goes through Y, with Canadian singer Grimes.
It is unclear what behind Xavier’s rejection of her father, in such a public way. Musk has not yet commented, and it is unclear if he was aware of Xavier’s plan before the court documents were submitted.

Musk has been vocal about various transgender issues and last year he complained about people using their own pronouns. He also said he was a fan of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who was condemned by the LGBTQ community for his bill to prevent discussion of gender identity and homosexuality in classrooms for children in preschool to third grade.
Musk called last week ‘virtual signaling’ critics who panned a new Ricky Gervais stand-up comedy special after the show was criticized for being ‘transphobic’.
The stand-up special on Netflix, ‘Supernature’, was also criticized for Gervais’ jokes about racism, identity politics and Hitler.
Still, many who watched Gervais’s show tweeted about how much they enjoyed it, and on Sunday The Atlantic staff writer Conor Friedersdorf tweeted a screenshot of movie review site Rotten Tomatoes showing that 92 percent of the more than 250 people who the special saw judged it well.
At the same time, only 14 percent of seven professional critics gave the stand-up routine a high rating.
In response, Musk wrote: ‘The “critics” do not seek criticism, but rather a signal of virtue. They’re out of touch with the people, and so they lose their credibility with the people. ‘
Meanwhile in April, Twitter employees slammed Musk’s deal to get the company into a $ 44 billion deal, accusing the world’s richest man of bigotry.
Employees at an ‘impromptu’ meeting with all hands dismissed angry questions to executives, including CEO Parag Agrawal, who was described as tired and sometimes annoyed.
One employee at the meeting described Musk as anti-gay and anti-transgender, and expressed fear that his property would hurt efforts to recruit new employees.
‘What should we tell the LGTBQ community at recruiting conferences we stand to attend when they ask us why they should work at Twitter when we’ve just sold ourselves on an open homophobic and transphobic?’ asked staff member Dalana Brand, the main characters and diversity officer of Twitter.
Brand diplomatically avoided agreeing with Musk’s assessment, and replied, ‘I can not talk to Elon’s personal feelings about these things. I can not talk about what he has done in his other companies, as far as people’s experiences are concerned. ‘
‘Maybe we can have a conversation in the future. That can be said, ‘she added.
Musk has also complained about people using their own pronouns, to which Chasten Buttigieg – the husband of Pete Buttigieg, transport secretary – replied: ‘I hear your frustration, honey. Look at the lesson and then we can go over the worksheet again. ‘
He said he was a fan of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who was condemned by the LGBTQ community for his so-called ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, which discusses gender identity and homosexuality in young children’s classrooms. occurs.
Last week, in response to an article on the question ‘What is a woman’ legitimized, Musk tweeted: ‘We are simultaneously told that gender differences do not exist and that genders are so profoundly different that irreversible surgery is the only option.
“Maybe someone can be wiser if I explain this dichotomy.”
He added: “It’s a better world if we are all less judgmental.”
Musk has also stated that he is completely pro-LGBT rights, citing Tesla’s constant top scores in lists of the best places for LGBT people to work as proof of his openness.
Meanwhile, WikiLeaks source Chelsea Manning, 34, has beaten Musk as a bastion of right-wing politics, saying he ‘seemed’ transphobic ‘when he tweeted a meme who was having fun on Netflix after it was reported that Canadian singer Grimes, 34, and Manning were in a relationship.
Manning has not confirmed or denied that she and Grimes, Elon’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of two of his children, were romantically linked at any given moment.
‘The one thing I will say is: he seemed at that time definitely transphobic, and rumors or speculation aside, that’s off-limits. I will respond to that. Any transphobia in a transphobic environment is not OK, ‘she said of Tesla’s CEO.
Musk tweeted a meme that read: “Netflix is waiting for the war to make a movie about a black Ukrainian guy who falls in love with a transgender soldier.”
The meme was destroyed by left-wing Twitter users.
Grimes began dating Musk in May 2018, and in May 2020, she gave birth to her son, X AE A-XII, known as X.
In December 2021, Musk and Grimes welcomed a daughter born via surrogate, Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, known as Y.
In August, Grimes and Musk visited Florence, Italy, with at least three of his five teenage sons, but it was not clear whether Xavier was among them.
The next court hearing in the case is scheduled for Friday.
