Sheryl Crow has filed for a restraining order against a fan who has made threats against her life.
Crow claims a man named Phillip Gordon Sparks believes she stole money from him and is threatening to kill her in angry online posts.
In legal documents filed in Los Angeles by the singer, Crow states, “It was clear to me that (Sparks) was deeply disturbed because his posts were delusional, rambling, filled with profanity and laced with angry rants… (He claimed) I had broken into his house because I was looking for his gun.
“Other posts claimed that I was supposedly filming him surreptitiously, tried to have him arrested and that I had stolen money from him… All of these allegations are, of course, categorically false.”
Sparks reportedly told an official at the Screen Actors Guild that he was going to shoot Sheryl last week.
Crow says the news was “extremely alarming”, and she now fears for the safety of her family and employees.
