Kilcher’s Compensation Fraud Case
In July, the California Department of Insurance announced that the 32-year-old actress, Q’orianka Kilcher, had been charged with two felony counts of workers’ compensation insurance fraud. She allegedly broke state law by collecting disability benefits while she worked on Yellowstone.
Per their press release, Kilcher played a supporting role in the 2019 Paramount Players film Dora and the Lost City of Gold – and allegedly injured her neck and right shoulder while working on the movie.
Authorities claimed that the actress told a doctor she was too injured to work while filming for her recurring role in season 3 of Yellowstone three years ago. Thus, she went on to collect $96,838 in disability benefits from Oct. 14, 2019, through Sept. 9, 2021.
However, the actress self-surrendered and pleaded not guilty at her arraignment on May 27, Law360 reported. With a hearing scheduled to take place on Sept. 7 in Los Angeles, a source close to Kilcher announced that she was completely blindsided by the charges.
“She was shocked, to say the least, about the charges and is looking forward to getting the truth out there,” the source said in part. “As a result of a car accident she was involved in on the set of Dora, she is now 10 percent disabled for the rest of her life. The onset injury was a long road to recovery, going through intense physical and mental suffering.”
