Elon Musk’s ex-wife refutes his claim that he held their dying newborn son in his arms as he died

Nevada

Elon Musk and his first wife, Canadian Justine Wilson had their first son, Nevada, in 2002. 

But Nevada died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) at 10 weeks.

Twins Griffin and Vivian Jenna Wilson (formerly Xavier), aged 18

After losing Nevada, Musk and Wilson – who were married between 2000 and 2008 – turned to IVF to grow their family. 

Wilson gave birth to twin sons Griffin and Xavier Musk in April 2004.

In April, Xavier filed court documents seeking to legally change from male to female and lose their last name, stating: ‘I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.’

Xavier Musk, 18, filed the paperwork in Santa Monica, California, on April 18, seeking to be known as Vivian Jenna Wilson, taking the maiden name of her mother Justine Wilson, who was married to Musk from 2000 to 2008 and shares 18-year-old twins Xavier and Griffin and 16-year-old triplets Damian, Kai and Saxon.

The transgender teenager explained that they wish to take their mother’s last name to distance them from their dad but they have not commented on whether they receive financial support from their dad – whose $213 billion dollar fortune makes him the world’s richest man.

X AE A-Xii Musk, aged 2

Musk started dating singer Grimes in May 2018 and she gave birth to their son X AE A-Xii, in May 2020. 

Their son was originally named X Æ A-12, but ‘Æ’ and ’12’ violated California law, which prohibits the use of any numbers of symbols in a name. The couple then changed the spelling of their son’s name. 

Instead of X Æ A-12, they revealed just a few weeks after the baby was born that his birth certificate would be registered under the name X AE A-Xii – using the Roman numeral version of the number ’12’ and changing the character æ to AE. 

The couple then broke up in September 2021.

Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, who goes by Y, aged 1

Grimes and Musk later welcomed their first daughter, Exa Dark Sideræl Musk, via surrogate in December 2021. 

Grimes referred to Musk as her ‘boyfriend’ in a Vanity Fair interview, but after the interview was published, she took to Twitter to reveal that they had since broken up.

‘Me and E have broken up *again* since the writing of this article,’ she wrote on March 10. ‘But he’s my best friend and the love of my life.’

New set of twins, names unknown 

It has emerged that Musk quietly had twins with one of his top executives weeks before he welcomed a child with Grimes via surrogate.

In November, the Tesla CEO, 51, reportedly had twins with Shivon Zilis, 36, the director of operations at Musk’s brain-machine interface company Neuralink, Insider reported. He now has nine known children.

Musk and Zilis filed a petition in April to change the twins’ names in order to ‘have their father’s last name and contain their mother’s last name as part of their middle name,’ according to the court documents. 

The twins were born in November, just weeks before Musk and Claire Boucher, the musician who performs as Grimes, had their second child via surrogate in December.
