Singer gets restraining order against man who threatened to shoot her

2012-08-15 06:52

Santa Monica – A judge has granted Sheryl Crow a three-year restraining order against a man who a witness says threatened to shoot the singer-songwriter.

Superior Court Judge James Hahn issued the order after a hearing yesterday.

The order requires Philip Gordon Sparks to not try to contact or meet the singer for the next three years.

Crow obtained a temporary restraining order against the 45-year-old in July after he told a union worker he was going to shoot the Grammy winner and film executive Harvey Weinstein.

Sparks repeatedly said in court he believes Crow and Weinstein stole money from him.

A judge also granted Weinstein a three-year restraining order against Sparks during yesterday’s hearing.

Sparks agreed to the orders after an hour-long hearing in which a psychiatrist called him dangerous.
