Nikki Sixx’s ex-wife Brandi Brandt has been extradited from Los Angeles to Australia to face drug trafficking charges.

Prosecutors allege the former Playboy Playmate was part of a syndicate that smuggled $130,000 worth of cocaine shipments onto Qantas and United Airlines passenger planes flying between California and Sydney in 2007.

Brandt and her ex-boyfriend, motorcycle stuntman Rusty Setser, reportedly conspired with an airline catering company to have the hidden drugs removed by members of the staff.

The 45-year-old is due in court in December and faces life in prison if convicted, according to the New York Daily News.

Sixx and Brandt were married from 1989 to 1996.
