A popular Gold Coast bikini model is faced with charges on trafficking and possession of anabolic steroids. Raquel Yasmine Petit, founder of Petikini, a range of luxury swimwear is being accused of importing commercial quantities of steroids to Victoria in-between July 2015 to November 2016. She sat through a hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates Court and was present when the police mentioned that the bikini model was involved in crime proceedings in the amount of $46,920 in-between April 2015 through May 2016.
Ms. Petit arrived in court dressed casually in a white shirt and black pants. Her hair is tied up neatly in a ponytail. No other details were released in court. The bikini model was charged on November 13, 2017. She currently has over 150,000 followers in Instagram. Petit’s lawyer has stated that the model is living in Queensland as of the moment. The charges were brought upon the former V8 Super Cars model on the day after Wade Yates-Taui, her ex-boyfriend was charged for the stabbing of a known Bandidos bike member in Queensland in 2013. Wade, who was a member of a rival gang, went to the United States after the incident. 10 months after the incident, the US Marshal and authorities caught up to Wade when he and Raquel posted pictures of their travels online and on social media.
In the extradition, the busty bikini model proclaimed her love for him in the public gallery. Raquel Petit is a photographic and international swimwear model. She is also the brand ambassador for companies Hard Rock Cafe, Harley-Davidson and Jim Beam. In her modeling profile, the 24-yr old former Miss V8 grid girl has stated that she is the face of Wild Orchid Australia. The Gold Coast model also has her own line of micro-cut bikini products called the Petikini. Raquel Petit will be back in court for trial in March 2018.
