SANTA MONICA, Calif. - A judge has granted Sheryl Crow a three-year restraining order against a man who a witness says threatened to shoot the singer-songwriter.

Superior Court Judge James Hahn issued the order after a hearing Tuesday in Santa Monica, Calif. The order requires Philip Gordon Sparks to not try to contact or meet the actress for the next three years.

Crow obtained temporary restraining order against the 45-year-old in July after told a union worker he was going to shoot the Grammy winner and film executive Harvey Weinstein. Sparks repeatedly said in court he believes Crow and Weinstein stole money from him.

A judge also granted Weinstein a three-year restraining order against Sparks during Tuesday's hearing.

Sparks agreed to the orders after an hour-long hearing in which a psychiatrist called him dangerous.
