Musk’s visit comes a week after his son Xavier Alexander Musk legally changed gender from male to female and dropped his last name to distance herself from father.

According to records, Xavier asked a California court to recognize her as female and change her name as part of new gender identity and to sever ties with the billionaire.

A hearing is set for Friday in Los Angeles to consider a request by Xavier to change name to Vivian Jenna Wilson and be legally acknowledged as female, according to a court filing.

Court papers state the reason for the change as “gender identity, and the fact that I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.”

The request was filed a day after the child turned 18 years old, gaining the legal rights of an adult.

The world’s richest person, Elon Musk has fathered eight children, one of whom died shortly after birth.

The chief of Tesla and SpaceX, Musk early this year launched a $44 billion bid to buy Twitter.

Musk is known for attention-getting tweets, including one saying he supports transgender people but that those asking to be identified by specific pronouns “are aesthetic nightmares.”
