As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Andre Fuentes, who is best known for working on some of Spears' biggest hit music videos, from "I'm A Slave 4 U" to "Crazy", was found dead at age 40 on May 31, 2016, by several concerned friends after he had gone missing.
"Andre went off the radar for a day or two this week, and his friends started to worry," one insider had revealed to Radar last spring.
"They went to his apartment building in L.A. After talking to his apartment manager, who had not seen him either, they decided to enter his place to make sure he was okay," the insider continued.

"As soon as they entered, they found him dead on his couch."
"Andre Fuentes's body is so badly decomposed that we cannot get a positive ID on him," said L.A.'s Chief Medical Examiner Ed Winter of the shocking discovery.
At the time, Spears, 35, noted on social media the Bible verse Philippians 4:13: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
The cause of Fuentes' death has never been publicly revealed.
