Having a disturbed weirdo stalk you on Facebook is one thing—but an outright murder threat is another. Sheryl Crow has filed a restraining order request against Phillip Gordon Sparks, 45, who she says walked into the Screen Actors Guild and told an employee he would "just shoot" Crow, TMZ reports. In his Facebook posts, Sparks allegedly accused her of breaking into his house for a gun, secretly filming him, and trying to have him arrested. "All of these allegations were, of course, categorically false," says Crow. See more here. (More Sheryl Crow stories.)
