Sheryl Crow has filed for a restraining order against a fan who has allegedly threatened her life.

The rocker claims Phillip Gordon Sparks believes she stole money from him and now is threatening to harm her in a series of angry online posts.

In papers filed in Los Angeles and obtained by TMZ.com, Crow states, "It was clear to me that (Sparks) was deeply disturbed because his posts were delusional, rambling, filled with profanity and laced with angry rants... (He claimed) I had broken into his house because I was looking for his gun.

"Other posts claimed that I was supposedly filming him surreptitiously, tried to have him arrested and that I had stolen money from him... All of these allegations are, of course, categorically false."

The papers also allege Sparks claims to have told an official at the Screen Actors Guild that he was going to shoot her last week.

Crow says the news was "extremely alarming", and she now fears for the safety of her family and employees.
