Elon Musk’s ex-wife Justine Wilson walked the dog days before her transgender son officially became a woman

Dressed in a black top and baggy jeans, Elon Musk’s ex-wife Justine was seen for the first time since their son Xavier – now daughter Vivian – revealed his plans to change gender and break with his billionaire father.

Vivian, 18, who has a twin brother named Griffin, filed a subpoena to make the changes in April but they were not revealed until this week.

The filing also reveals a rift between the teenager and his SpaceX boss’ father, with Vivian petitioning to change her last name to Wilson and adding: ‘I no longer live with or wish to relate to my biological father in any way, form or form.’

Vivian now faces a court hearing on Friday morning in Santa Monica to confirm the change in her gender and name.

Under California law, those who petition to change their name and gender automatically have a hearing scheduled for six weeks after filing their petition to give anyone objecting time to counter, provided they have ‘good reasons’.

If no objections come, the judge will automatically provide a name or change of gender.

Whoever objected must appear to explain his reasons before the judge and the applicant is allowed to present counter-arguments before the judge decides.

Justine, 49, declined to discuss the case outside her home in Brentwood, California, but previously shared her pride in Vivian in a recent post on Twitter.

Alluding to a conversation with one of her children, she said: ‘I had a strange childhood,’ my 18-year-old son told me.

‘I can’t believe I look as normal as I am.’ I said, ‘I’m so proud of you.’ ‘I’m proud of myself!’

Musk has a history of making controversial comments about trans people, declaring in 2020 that ‘pronouns suck’ and adding: ‘I totally support trans, but all these pronouns are an aesthetic nightmare.’

He has also expressed his support for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who sparked controversy with a bill dubbed the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill that prohibits teaching children in third grade or below anything about sexual orientation and gender identity.

Vivian is one of five children born to Canadian writers Wilson and Musk during their eight-year marriage.

Along with Vivian and Griffin, the former couple are also parents to 16 year old triplets: Kai, Saxon, and Damian.

Photographs of the children are rare, but Wilson’s old Flickr account dug up by DailyMail.com provides insight into their humble childhood, with images of the boys reading, eating dinner at a restaurant and playing on the family patio. .

Musk, 50, has two other children with Canadian singer Grimes, 33: two-year-old X A-12 and six-month-old Exa Dark Sideræl – nicknamed X and Y by their parents.

Wilson and Musk separated acrimoniously in 2008, with Wilson writing an essay in Marie Claire in 2010 in which she described herself as a ‘rookie wife’ and expressed her anger over her engagement to British actress Talulah Riley just six weeks after she filed for divorce.

He also recounted how Musk declared himself the ‘alpha’ in their relationship and treated him like an employee to which he often responded: ‘If you were my employee, I would fire you.’

When their eldest son, Nevada, died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in 2002, Wilson said Musk viewed his grief as “emotional manipulation” and refused to talk about the baby.

Although they went on to have five children, she said she considered it unimportant and pushed it into a trophy wife cliché.

After they separated, Wilson said they communicated through his assistant, although he developed a friendship with Riley who married and divorced Musk twice but has no children with him.

Riley, 36, described Musk as a devoted father, telling biographer Ashlee Vance: ‘He tries to come home early for family dinner with me and the kids and maybe play some computer games with the boys.’

Following his divorce from Riley in 2016, Musk dated Amber Heard, 36, who posted photos of himself playing with his kids to his Instagram.

Musk then went on to have a long relationship and two children with Grimes, who is now dating Chelsea Manning.

In 2020, the entrepreneur said in an interview with the New York Times that he was a hands-off father to his younger children, but he said he had more roles as they got older.

Tesla boss said: ‘If I had a Tesla trip to China, for example, I would take the kids with me and we would go see the Great Wall or we would take the bullet train from Beijing to Xian and see Terracotta. Soldier.’
