This is so sad to hear.
Although an actual date is unknown, Britney’s ex, John Sundahl, was killed during the second week of January 2015 while he was flying a private helicopter near Kabul, Afghanistan, reports the Daily Mail.
John’s helicopter was hit by a missile, reportedly belonging to the Taliban, which caused it to crash, killing him instantly.
Britney and John dated briefly back in 2007, after they met at AA and he reportedly encouraged her to turn her life around before it was too late.

It has been reported that Britney and John remained friends after their short romance, and she was “devastated” to hear about his tragic and untimely death. The pair allegedly rekindled their romance for a brief time in 2014 after the pop singer ended her engagement from Jason Trawick in January.
Sadly, things did not work out.
John reportedly worked as a private pilot in the region, where his responsibility was to fly dignitaries in and out of the combat zones. There is no word on whether or not he was alone in the helicopter when it was shot down.
So sad. Our thoughts go out to Britney, as well as John’s family and friends, during this very difficult time.
