""I had a weird childhood," my 18-year-old said to me. "I can't believe I'm as normal-seeming as I am. I said, "I'm very proud of you." "I'm proud of myself!"

Justine's Tweet elicited comments from her followers and below are some of their thoughts:
"It's far easier to do one surgery than the other. Boo hoo. I wish my parents were rich so I could complain as if that was the only thing that mattered. Poor little rich kid. We can do a name change for a few $ without the publicity. I did. My parents aren't rich any day."
"Ikr I'm also guessing they will still be taking his money."
"This is dark and twisted. Poor kid."
Petition to have name change
Earlier, TUKO.co.ke reported Elon Musk's daughter submitted a petition to change her name, claiming that she does not wish to be related to her biological father in any way and wants the paperwork to reflect her new gender identity.
The daughter of the business magnate and his first wife Justine Wilson was born Xavier Alexander Musk, and in the year 2008, the couple divorced.
Vivian, 18, identifies as a trans woman and filed a request to alter her name to reflect her new gender identification in April at the Los Angeles County superior court in Santa Monica.
According to an article published by Daily Mail, she categorically stated she doesn't want a relationship with Elon Musk.
The petition stated that she no longer lives with the billionaire and does not seek to be associated with him.
Name change, from Musk to Wilson
Musk's daughter wants her name to be Vivian Jenna Wilson, which is her mother's maiden name and corresponds to her gender identification.
Musk previously described having preferred pronouns as an aesthetic disaster and had tweeted in 2020 that he supports trans people but pronouns were an aesthetic nightmare.
