June 20 (Reuters) - Elon Musk's transgender daughter has filed a request to change her name in accordance with her new gender identity and because "I no longer live with or wish to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form.".
The petition for both a name change and a new birth certificate reflecting her new gender identity was filed with the Los Angeles County Superior Court in Santa Monica in April.
It came to light recently in some online media reports.
There was no further explanation of the rift between Musk's daughter and her father, the Tesla (TSLA.O) and SpaceX chief who is attempting a $44 billion takeover of social media platform Twitter (TWTR.N).
Neither a lawyer who represents Musk nor the Tesla media office immediately responded to Reuters emails requesting comment on Monday.
