Petra Ecclestone has filed legal documents to change the last names of her 3 kids from her ex-husband’s name to hers.
The fashion designer/socialite wants the last name of her three kids – Andrew Kulbir Stunt, James Robert Frederick Stunt and Lavinia Stunt – to become Ecclestone according to the documents, obtained by TMZ.
The reason given in the documents reads: “To conform children’s last name to mother’s last name … difficult in both daily life and traveling with children with a different name to mother.”
The document goes on to give another reason for the name change.
It says: “Change and remove last name of absentee father who is subject to regular negative media and tabloid articles and criminal investigation.”
The father of the 3 kids, James Stunt, is awaiting trial for money laundering, forgery and racially abusing a black police officer. He has denied all charges.
Stunt, a gold bullion dealer, and Ecclestone divorced in 2017.
Petra, whose dad is Formula 1 honcho Bernie Ecclestone, is engaged to Sam Palmer and they have a one-year-old daughter together.
The judge has not ruled on her petition.
