The 17-year-old daughter of notorious gangster Carl Williams was kicked out of an over 18s marquee at the Melbourne Cup, according to a report
This isn’t the first time the young woman has been spotted enjoying overage luxuries despite being only 17 years old.
In April, Dhakota posted a picture of herself she claimed was taken in the high-rollers’ section of Melbourne’s Crown Casino.
She tagged the photograph as having been taken in the ‘Mahogany Room Crown Casino’, with the caption ‘made it’.
When they became aware of the matter, Crown Casino referred it to the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) as well as Victoria Police.
It managed to escape a $19,342 fine as Crown had not breached any laws, and as The Commission doesn’t take action against individuals, Dhakota escaped without a penalty also.
The Williams family has a long history with Crown as Carl, a major drug dealer, held gatherings there as he believed it was the safest place to meet until he was banned in 2004.
Dhakota, who was born in March 2001 and just nine when her father was murdered, was thrown a christening party in Crown’s Palladium Room in December 2003.
The two-year delay was due to her father being in prison.

Appearing on Channel Seven’s Sunday Night program in 2016, Dhakota spoke fondly about her father, who was convicted of four murders.
‘We know our dad as our dad, not what he’s described as in the newspapers… so we know him as fun and loving and caring for us, and always made us happy,’ she said.
‘If you spoke to him and got to know him, you’d think he’s not that sort of person, like, and you can tell he did it for his family ’cause he was all for us, all for us family.’
‘It was just normal for me, that’s all I really knew.’
The notorious Melbourne gangster was a key player in the infamous gangland war which killed 36 criminal figures between 1998 and 2010.
