Unkempt ‘do, constant cravings, slightly heavier figure—these are all signs that Britney Spears might be under a lot of stress.

Britney’s not just a mother of two, she’s also a mega pop star that has a residency at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas and a reputation to maintain.

New fears are surfacing for the troubled 32-year-old singer who has been faced with a lot of pressure to keep building the show’s momentum.

Britney Spears Packs on Pounds

Britney appeared to put on some weight following her People's Choice Awards appearance.

“Gaining or losing weight, not being put-together…changes in physical appearance are all signs her problems are not being treated well,” says Dr.Carole Lieberman, an LA-based psychiatrist who hasn’t treated the singer. “If she doesn’t watch out, she could fall apart again.”

In this week’s issue of In Touch, we take a look at how her 2014 journey started with a much buzzed-about high-impact show to the struggles of selling out the 7,000-seat arena.

From stunning at the People’s Choice Awards in January to wearing too tight outfits on stage, an insider reveals her family is worried that “she could have another meltdown.”

“She isn’t the driven girl that she used to be. Her favorite thing to do is hang out with her kids,” a source explains of her sons Sean, 8, and Jayden, 7. “It wouldn’t surprise me if she retires as soon as her Vegas stint is over.”

Britney's next round of Vegas shows kicks off April 25.
