Reporter Julie Kaufman no charges against Bjork (VIDEOS) in "Welcome to Bangkok" Airport attack harassing her son, New Zealand news photographer assault.
In 1996 Bjork was headed from Hong Kong to Thailand. She made it clear to the reporters that she wanted to be left alone until she could hold a proper press conference and photoshoot a little later.
Bjork was concerned about her son Sindri, since he was old enough to be approached by the press now, and she was very protective of his privacy.
Arriving at the airport, all her requests to be left alone were completely ignored and she was drowned in a flood of reporters and camera crews, including one of cable station IBC's show 'Fast Forward' - who claimed they had been promised an interview.
'Fast Forward's reporter Julie Kaufman beamed "Welcome to Bangkok!" towards Sindri when Bjork, without warning, jumped her, dragged her to the floor and banged her head against the concrete floor about 5 times.
Later on, Bjork apologized, and Kaufman decided not to sue her but reported feeling sorry for her for having so much anger inside.
In 2008, the Icelandic singer allegedly ripped the shirt of a news photographer after he snapped her picture as she arrived in New Zealand to play a gig.
"I took a couple of pictures and, as I turned and walked away, she came up behind me, grabbed the back of my black skivvy and tore it," New Zealand Herald photographer Glenn Jeffrey told the New Zealand Press Association. "As she did this, she fell over; she fell to the ground. At no stage did I touch her or speak with her. Bjork said nothing during the incident but her male companion was saying: 'B, don't do this. B, don't do this.'"
Jeffrey admitted the man with Bjork had asked beforehand that he not take photos.
