Bjork is at it again. The Icelandic singing sensation attacked a news photographer on her arrival at Auckland International Airport Sunday, January 13.

Bjork, who first rose to fame for her debut album "Debut" released in 1993, had just arrived at the airport early that day when a New Zealand Herald photographer named Glenn Jeffrey photographed her arriving at 7.50 A.M.

Glenn, 25, told New Zealand Herald that he was asked by a man who was with Bjork not to take photographs of the star.

"I took a couple of pictures and I got about three or four frames of her ... and as I turned and walked away she came up behind me, grabbed the back of my black skivvy and tore it down the back," Glenn was quoted as saying. "As she did this she fell over, she fell to the ground. At no stage did I touch her or speak with her."

Bjork, according to Glenn, said nothing throughout the incident but her male companion was saying, "'B, don't do this, B, don't do this.'"

Jeffrey claimed he already spoke with Auckland police about the incident later Sunday, saying "I don't see being assaulted as I'm working as a press photographer as an acceptable thing. If anybody assaults anybody you have the right to a legal recourse, whoever they are."

Bjork's camp has just yet comment on the report, but a spokeswoman for Auckland International Airport said staff would review video footage if police requested it.

Bjork is said to be in the northern city of Auckland to perform at the Big Day Out concert on Friday, January 18. The Sunday attack, however, wasn't her first smackdown. She was famously video tapped attacked a reporter after a long flight to Thailand back in 1996.
