Britney Spears' ex-boyfriend killed by Taliban

A pilot who dated Britney Spears and helped her through her darkest days has been shot dead in Afghanistan by Taliban terrorists.

John Sundahl was flying near Kabul, where he worked as a private helicopter pilot, earlier this month (Jan15) when a missile hit his aircraft and killed him.


Spears met him at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in Los Angeles in 2007 and they briefly dated. He helped her through her public meltdown and steered her away from booze, warning her that if she didn't stop it would kill her.


A source tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "She is devastated. Britney thought he was a lovely man."
