SHERYL CROW has obtained a temporary restraining order against a 45-year-old man who, she claims, was threatening her, E! ONLINE reports. CROW alleged that PHILLIP GORDON SPARKS "was deeply disturbed because his [FACEBOOK] posts were delusional, rambling, filled with profanity and laced with angry rants."
Allegedly, last APRIL, SPARKS took to FACEBOOK and online fan forums to accuse the singer of "breaking into his home to look for his gun, as well as 'filming him surreptitiously,' trying to get him arrested and stealing money from him. He also claimed that CROW and movie producer HARVEY WEINSTEIN were harassing him to keep quiet about a failed reality show."
When CROW heard that SPARKS had gone to the SAG office about a week ago and told someone he would "just shoot her," she asked for a restraining order. A hearing to make the temporary order permanent is scheduled for AUG. 14th.
