Björk claims she was sexually harassed by a film director

"When I turned the director down repeatedly, he sulked and punished me and created for his team an impressive net of illusion where I was framed as the hard one".

The Icelandic singer posted a message on Facebook over the weekend (13-15Oct17) alleging she was sexually harassed by a Danish director, although she did not disclose the identity of the man in question.

Director Lars von Trier has denied sexually harassing Bjork on the set of their film Dancer in the Dark.

She added that since she didn't have much to lose by leaving the world of film, she was able to walk away from the experience relatively unscathed, although she did say it took her "a year's time" to recover.
