Introducing Vivian Jenna Wilson.

Elon Musk's daughter has been granted approval to legally change her name after saying she "no longer wishes to be related to my biological father in any way."

Court documents obtained by E! News show that a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge granted the 18-year-old's request to change her name legally. The petition, filed in mid-April, additionally sought to legally change her gender from male to female and be issued a new birth certificate. The judge also approved both requests.

Per YOU, Vivian initially applied at the Los Angeles County Superior Court because she "no longer lives with" or "wishes to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form."

Musk has seven children and shares five kids with his ex-wife Justine Wilson, with whom he split from in 2008. They are parents to twins Vivian and Griffin and 16-year-old triplets Kai, Saxon, and Damian. 

The tech billionaire also shares his 2-year-old son X Æ A-Xii Musk and 6-month-old daughter Exa Dark Sideræl Musk with the singer Grimes.
