‘Yellowstone’ actress charged with workers’ comp fraud

Actress Q’orianka Kilcher has been charged in Los Angeles County with workers’ compensation fraud, officials announced Monday.

“An investigation by the California Department of Insurance found Kilcher allegedly broke the law in collecting over $90,000 in disability benefits,” according to a news release from the agency.

Kilcher allegedly worked on the hit show “Yellowstone” after she had told a doctor that she was too injured to work. While acting in the movie “Dora and the Lost City of Gold” in October 2018, the 32-year-old actress allegedly injured her neck and right shoulder.

Kilcher, who lives in North Hollywood, went to see a doctor a few times that year, but stopped treatment and did not respond to the insurance company that was handling her claim on behalf of her employer, officials said.

Then, a year later, Kilcher allegedly contacted the insurance company, saying she needed treatment. She told the doctor handling her claim that she had been offered work since her injury, but had been unable to accept it because her neck pain was too severe.

Based on her statements to the doctor, Kilcher began receiving temporary total disability benefits, officials said.
