(CBS/AP) Sheryl Crow now has a temporary restraining order against a man who is accused of threatening to shoot her.

The order requires Phillip Gordon Sparks, 45, to stay 100 yards away and not attempt to contact Crow, her family or any of her workers. She wrote in a sworn statement that she is fearful of Sparks because he has claimed in profane online tirades that she has stolen money from him and broken into his house.

She also states Sparks recently went to the offices of an entertainment union and told a worker that he was going to "just shoot" her.

A worker at the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists wrote in declaration accompanying Crow's filing that she spoke with Sparks on July 16 and he made the threat against Crow. He also threatened to shoot film executive Harvey Weinstein because he believed they were filming him and stole millions from him, the worker stated.

The temporary order was granted July 24 and first reported Monday by celebrity website TMZ. A hearing on a three-year protective order is scheduled for Aug. 14 in Santa Monica, Calif.

Crow has won nine Grammy Awards and has two sons, ages 5 and 2.

The 50-year-old singer-songwriter will be on tour throughout August. Her most recent studio album, "100 Miles from Memphis," was released in 2010.
