Billionaire Elon Musk is finally active on Twitter again after a brief hiatus and just shared a rare photo of himself and his four sons.

The Tesla founder tweeted a pic of himself with sons Griffin (18) and 16-year-old triplets Kai, Damon and Saxon posing with Pope Francis during a recent trip to Italy.

ONE OF ELON MUSK’S CHILDREN MISSING

But Musk’s transgender daughter Vivian Jenna Wilson was notably absent from the family vacation. Wilson, who was born male and Griffin’s twin, changed her full name and gender identity.

In papers filed in Santa Monica, California, the teenager, born Xavier Musk, revealed she would be taking her mother, Justine Wilson’s surname. Wilson, a Canadian author, was married to Musk from 2000 to 2008. She said she wanted to sever ties with the mogul.

“I no longer live with my biological father nor do I wish to be related to him in any way,” she wrote in court papers.

As to what led to the strained relationship between the pair, reports suggest the teenager wasn’t happy with her father’s antics lately. Musk announced he would be voting for a Republican candidate in the next US presidential election. This likely didn’t sit well with Vivian, given that the party has vowed to undo pro-LGBTQI policies.

In addition, Musk recently fired employees at his company SpaceX for penning an open letter to him. In the letter, the staffers called Musk out for his tweeting habits and accused him of embarrassing them.

According to various reports, the employees demanded that the 51-year-old be called to order when it comes to what he says on social media – Twitter in particular.
