Anna Kournikova will not be returning to “The Biggest Loser” next season.

“I enjoyed my time on ‘The Biggest Loser’ ranch. Although I will not be returning as a full time trainer on season 13, I will always be a part of ‘The Biggest Loser’ family and my commitment to bettering lives through health and fitness will continue,” the tennis player said in a statement on Monday to The Hollywood Reporter.

It was back in May that Anna first revealed she was joining the show as Jillian Michaels departed to focus on family.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news, Anna and those behind the scenes at the show had their differences.

Staffers on the NBC reality series told THR there were clashes with the athlete and added she was unsympathetic with contestants.
