Q’orianka Kilcher was charged with insurance fraud for what officials claim was a misrepresentation of 2-year disability benefits…amounting to tens of thousands.
The actress – who recently appeared on ‘Yellowstone’ – has been charged with 2 counts of workers’ compensation insurance fraud after an investigation by the California Department of Insurance.
The agency says Kilcher began making claims in 2019 and reportedly raked in north of $90,000 in disability benefits.
According to CDOI – Kilcher had reported a work-related neck and shoulder injury she allegedly suffered in October 2018 while filming “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” which they say she suffered for. sought treatment a few times that year… only to stop and start again a year later when she apparently told her doctor that the pain had returned and she couldn’t work because of the pain in the neck.
It turned out to be BS, at least according to the department, as it claims she was in labor just before telling the doctor the pain was too bad to do his job – filming ‘Yellowstone’ between July and October 2019 According to the records , she started collecting benefits just 5 days after she last worked on the show.
Officials allege she continued to collect disability money until September 2021 … raising a total of $96,838. Kilcher — whose big break came as Pocahontas in 2005’s ‘The New World’ — turned himself in and was arraigned last May.
