    Britney Spears' ex-boyfriend killed by Taliban fighters in Afghanistan: report

    A helicopter pilot and Britney Spears ex-boyfriend — who helped the pop princess quit booze — has been killed by Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.
    John Sundahl, 44, was shot down during a flight from Kabul, where he’d been working as a private contractor transporting officials across the war-torn nation, according to the Daily Mirror.
    “She is devastated,” a source close to Spears told the UK paper. “Britney thought he was a lovely man.”
    A former real estate whiz, Sundahl dated Spears, 33, in 2007 after they met at Alcoholics Anonymous in Los Angeles. He spoke openly about her alcohol abuse.

    “I told her, ‘If you fall off the wagon I don’t think you’ll live,’” Sundahl told the National Enquirer in 2007. I told her, ‘If you don’t want to get sober for yourself, do it for your kids.’”
    Spears publicly credited him with helping her overcome her drinking problems.
    From his LA home, Sundahl’s brother Karl said officials told the family the Taliban was responsible for the brave pilot’s death.
    “It’s heartbreaking,” Karl Sundahl said. “John went there to try to repair the country. He was trying to help people, he would often say that the country was in chaos.”

    Sundahl’s body was returned to the U.S. last week. A small family funeral was held at a Buddhist temple in Los Angeles, according to The Mirror.
    “We had a really small funeral,” his brother said. “It was what John would have wanted.”

    I have no memory of this guy but he sounded like he was a decent man. RIP.

    I may be wrong, but didn't something tragic happen to another one of her ex boyfriend's?

    I don't remember this guy being her boyfriend at all. Must have been a weekend during her pink-wig days when I wasn't paying attention.

    I experienced a sense of Deja Vu also. I checked the link and this article is from January. I can't find a previous thread for it here, though.

    I saw it by chance, searched, saw it wasn't posted here & posted it. The celeb gossip section has been deader than a 5 week old kipper (& boring) so I thought that it wouldn't hurt.

    You're right about that! Sorry if it seemed like I was criticizing. I just meant to help someone who seemed confused.

    I appreciate people starting threads and posting articles. I've tried it a few times myself lately and it can be a lot of work fixing the formatting and cleaning up html tags and whatnot, so that it looks nice. I'm happy to see people making the effort.
