A judge granted Sheryl Crow a temporary restraining order against a man who threatened to shoot her, reports TMZ. Phillip Gordon Sparks, 45, is to stay at least 100 yards away from her and not attempt to contact the Grammy winner. He allegedly went on tirades online saying she stole money from him and broke into his house. So, he said he was going to “just shoot” her. He even addressed his wishes to the SAG/AFTRA union and threatened Harvey Weinstein, as he believed the movie exec was filming him and stole money from him too. Oh what a looney tune!

It took him 16 (!) years to propose to Gibson and he finally did it on Dec. 2, 2010 on his VH1 reality show, “Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It.”
