A show about losing weight may be losing one of its stars.

According to People sources, Jillian Michaels is "deeply concerned about the direction" of The Biggest Loser and may soon depart the series that made her famous.

"She is turned off by the mean-spirited story lines and poor care of the contestants," an anonymous insider tells the magazine.

This rumors comes a few months after the show’s most controversial finale to date, as Rachel Frederickson won the latest season, but failed to win over critics.

Many believe Frederickson dieted to a dangerously low level, dropping 150 pounds in the process.

"Michaels wants to distance herself from the Biggest Loser brand," says the source. "Especially considering what happened with Rachel, her feeling is that there isn't proper attention paid to the contestants' health or wellness."

Frederickson has since gained back 20 pounds and now believes she's at the "perfect weight."

But Michaels left the show for one season already and clearly doesn’t think she needs to be a part of it.

"They asked her to come back to boost the ratings and they needed her, but the Rachel thing shook her up," concludes People.

At the finale, Michaels really did visibly distraught by Frederickson's emaciated appearance, which you can see in the following photo gallery:
