Sheryl Crow Obtains Restraining Order Against Man She Says Threatened to 'Shoot' Her
The singer claims that Phillip Gordon Sparks has been posting "delusional," profanity-laced rants about her on his Facebook page.
Sheryl Crow has obtained a temporary restraining order against a man who she says recently claimed that he was going to shoot her.
Crow says her personal manager, Pam Wertheimer, discovered Sparks' Facebook messages in April.
"It was clear to me that he was deeply disturbed because his posts were delusional, rambling, filled with profanity and laced with angry rants," she writes.
Crow added that one post claimed she had broken into his house looking for a gun, while another accused her of filming him without his knowledge.
"All of these allegations are, of course, totally false," she writes in her filing.
A week ago, Crow claims, Sparks told an employee at the SAG-AFTRA offices in Los Angeles that he was going to "just shoot" her.
"I am greatly concerned that Mr. Sparks may physically harm me, my family members, close friends, agents and representatives who are identified in the accompanying request," she writes.
A hearing is scheduled for Aug. 14 to determine whether to make the temporary order permanent, according to E!.
News of Crow's filing comes a couple months after the singer, 50, revealed that she has a benign brain tumor.
