Wellness coach Jillian Michaels is leaving NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” again.

"After helping hundreds of contestants transform their lives and inspiring millions of viewers at home, ‘The Biggest Loser’ and Jillian Michaels have decided to part ways and she will not be returning for season 16 when it airs in the fall," the network said in a statement.

A source told People in April that Michaels was "deeply concerned about the direction the show has been taking. She is turned off by the mean-spirited story lines and poor care of the contestants."

The show has seen its fair share of controversy lately. Winner Rachel Fredrickson was thought to look dangerously thin after she dropped to 105 pounds, and in November, it was determined that Michaels cheated by giving caffeine supplements to her team, which facilitated the return of Ruben Studdard.

Michaels started with the series when it debuted in 2004 and previously left the to start a family with partner Heidi Rhoades. She missed seasons three, 12 and 13.

Jillian struggled with her weight before becoming a fitness expert and wellness coach. Her work includes books, DVDs, video games and a weekly podcast.

Fans reacted to her departure on Twitter.
