Sheryl Crow was granted a temporary restraining order against Phillip Sparks, a man accused of threatening the singer. Sparks must now maintain a distance of 100 yards from Crow at all times; he is also prohibited from contacting her, her family or her employees.
The singer, in a sworn statement, said she was frightened of Sparks after he claimed online that he believed Crow has stolen money from him and broken into his house. Crow also said that Sparks had recently told a worker at an entertainment union that he was going to "just shoot" her.
A worker at the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists wrote in a declaration that Sparks made the threat against Crow when she spoke to him on July 16, according to the BBC.
In a statement on her Facebook page Crow, who was recently diagnosed with a benign brain tumor, revealed that she plans to continue on with business as usual:
"Hey everyone, please don't worry about my 'brain tumor,' it's a non-cancerous growth. I know some folks can have problems with this kind of thing, but I want to assure everyone I'm OK."
