Pretoria-born billionaire Elon Musk said that he believes his “communist” transgender daughter, who cut ties with him, was brainwashed into “thinking that anyone rich is evil” at the California school he sent her to. The World’s Richest Person has washed his hands of any responsibility for the rift between himself and his daughter, whose name was legally changed to Vivian Jenna Musk.
Instead, he blames the Crossroads School for Arts and Sciences in Santa Monica for her “woke mind virus,” as revealed in an except for the upcoming biography Elon Musk published in the Wall Street Journal.
The 19-year-old’s transition was reportedly part of a domino effect that led the billionaire to buy Twitter, now known as X, as part of his mission to stomp out wokeness.
The billionaire said that he was initially “generally sanguine” with his child’s decision until April 2022 when Wilson “became a fervent Marxist and broke off all relations with him,” according to the except.
Musk is a father of 10. Here’s a quick look at his kids, ex-wife and “baby mamas”.
Musk welcomed his first child, Nevada, with ex-wife Justine Musk in 2002. However, the infant passed away at just 10 weeks old. Nevada lost his life due to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
The billionaire and Justine welcomed a pair of twins, Griffin and Xavier, in 2004. After losing their first child, the pair turned to In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) to grow their family. Xavier legally changed her gender and name to Vivian Jenna Wilson in 2022, just days after his 18th birthday. She distanced herself from her billionaire father and took on her mother’s maiden surname.
In 2006, Justine welcomed triplets Kai, Saxon and Damian, also using IVF. This means Justine is the mother of six of the billionaire’s eight children. Justine and the billionaire got divorced in 2008.
Grimes and Musk welcomed their baby boy X AE A-XII, affectionately known as baby X, to the world in May 2020 after the pair had been dating since 2018. So, he is currently three years old. The musician and billionaire announced their split in September 2021.
The pair secretly welcomed their baby girl in December 2021 via a surrogate. This was revealed during her Vanity Faircover shoot when the reporter heard the baby wailing upstairs, and Grimes was forced to reveal her daughter.
In July, Business Insiderreported that Musk secretly welcomed a pair of twins with Shivon Zilis in November 2021. According to court documents seen by the publication, – the billionaire and Zilis filed a petition for the twins to have their father’s surname and their mom’s surname as their middle name. This means the twins will turn a year old this month.
