Sheryl Crow, 50 has obtained a temporary restraining order against Phillip Gordon Sparks after he threatened to shoot Crow amd had been leaving ‘delusional’ rants about her on Facebook. Sparks said Crow and movie producer Harvey Weinstein were trying to keep him from talking about a failed relaity show.
The singer has obtained a temporary restraining order against a 45-year-old man, who, she claims, was ranting about her on Facebook and ultimately told an employee at the Screen Actors Guild in Los Angeles that he was going to shoot Crow.
According to Crow, it appeared that Phillip Gordon Sparks “was deeply disturbed because his posts were delusional, rambling, filled with profanity and laced with angry rants.”
The Grammy winner states that, according to what she heard from her personal manager, Sparks started writing about her on Facebook and online fan forums in April, accusing her of breaking into his home to look for his gun, as well as “filming him surreptiously,” trying to get him arrested and stealing money from him.
Sparks also claimed that Crow and movie producer Harvey Weinstein were harassing him to keep quiet about a failed reality show, according to anecdotes from his posts included in Crow’s filing.
“All of these allegations are, of course, totally false,” she says in her TRO petition, filed last Tuesday in L.A. Superior Court.
She says she was compelled to take action when she heard that Sparks had gone to the SAG office about a week ago and told someone he would “just shoot [Crow].”
