Elon Musk calls his transgender daughter Vivian a ‘communist’ who thinks ‘anyone rich is evil’ and accuses private Santa Monica high school Crossroads of brainwashing her
Elon Musk has spoken out about his painful estrangement from his transgender daughter, calling her a “communist” and blaming her politics for the expensive private high school she attended.
Musk’s now 19-year-old child legally changed her gender to female and her name to Vivian Jenna Wilson last year, saying in court filings that she “wants to be no longer related in any way” to the billionaire Tesla CEO.
In an excerpt from his forthcoming biography of Musk, published Thursday by the Wall Street Journalwrote author Walter Isaacson that Musk’s breakup with Vivian “hurt him more than anything in his life since the infant death of his firstborn child Nevada,” who died of sudden infant death syndrome just ten weeks old.
The billionaire was “generally optimistic” when he first learned of his child’s transition, but things changed when Vivian, who is also called Jenna, began expressing extreme Marxist views and announced her intention to cut all ties, says Isaacson.
“She went beyond socialism and became a full-blown communist and thought everyone who’s rich is evil,” Musk told the author, placing the blame in part on Crossroads, the private elementary school in Santa Monica where annual tuition costs up to costs as much as $50,000.

A spokesperson for Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences did not immediately respond to a request for comment from DailyMail.com on Thursday.
Isaacson writes that when Vivian was 16, which would have been 2020 or 2021, she texted Elon’s brother’s wife to come out, writing, “Hey, I’m transgender, and my name is Jenna now… Don’t tell. my father.’
The biographer reveals that Musk’s painful breakup with Vivian is partly responsible for the billionaire’s continued obsession with the “awake” ideology, which he sees as a threat to human civilization and which drove his purchase of Twitter worth last year. of $42 billion.
“Unless the wake-mind virus, which is fundamentally anti-science, anti-merit, and anti-human in general, is stopped, civilization will never become multiplanetary,” Musk told the author.
While Musk has previously blamed “awake” schools for his disagreement with Vivian, it’s the first time he’s mentioned Crossroads, an organization that targets the children of the rich and famous and has a star-studded list of alumni.
Founded in 1971 as a secular school initially associated with St. Augustine By-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Santa Monica, the school has grown into a prestigious academy for the next generation of Hollywood stars.
Crossroads alumni include a slew of A-listers like Zooey Deschanel, Jonah Hill, Jack Black, Kate Hudson, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Jack Quaid, the son of actors Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid and a rising Hollywood star himself, also graduated from the school.
LeBron James’ sons, Bronny and Bryce, both also attended Crossroads before transferring to Sierra Canyon for that school’s basketball program.

“We believe that children’s uniqueness is revealed in their very existence and that it is the responsibility of the school to foster their innate sense of the mystery and joy of life,” says the school’s philosophical statement. .
As one Crossroads alumna remembered Refinery29: ‘Students all took a class called ‘life skills’, which is essentially group therapy. There we talked about our feelings as if they were as important as the Pythagorean theorem.’
Vivian first filed a legal petition in April 2022 to change her name and gender.
She told a California court that she wanted to be known as Vivian Jenna Wilson, in part to distance herself from her father, who is currently ranked as the richest person in the world, with a net worth of $258 million, according to Forbes.
That petition was granted in June 2022. Her mother is Canadian author Justine Wilson, who was married to Musk from 2000 to 2008.
Musk has a total of nine living children, including five with Wilson, two with ex-girlfriend Grimes, and two with Neuralink executive Shivon Zilis.
Musk once tweeted, “I absolutely support transgender, but all these pronouns are an aesthetic nightmare.” And: ‘Pronouns are worthless.’
