Sad news for Britney Spears.
The 34-year-old’s close friend and longtime collaborator Andre Fuentes has died. He was 40-years-old.
Andre was responsible for choreographing some of the singer's most iconic videos, including “Crazy” and “I’m a Slave 4 U.”
Fellow dancer Melissa Miles confirmed his death on Instagram:
My dear sweet Andre Fuentes. I'm in complete shock. You went from being one of my first dance teachers in LA, to a mentor, then to my friend. You saw something in me most didn't, and believed in me more than I may have even believed in myself. I will never forget our talks and some of the things you said that meant everything to me. I will miss you more than words can say. Thank you for your artistry and everything you contributed to the dance world. You changed my life and so many others. Until we meet again... RIP Andre 😢
Britney posted a Bible verse on her own account, though didn't make mention of Andre's passing:
The cause of Andre’s death remains unclear. Our thoughts are with his loved ones during this emotional time.
