Britney Spears emerged from the recording studio in Miami looking frazzled, tired and even injured – sporting a mystery wound on her right ankle.
Despite an apparent reconciliation with agent boyfriend Jason Trawick, Britney looked far from happy as RadarOnline.com spotted her, as she took a break from work.
Wearing a clingy white dress, Britney had a somber demeanor despite her recent denial of reports that she was suffering from depression.
Britney said recently: 'I'm learning to take better care of myself and not get stressed or down about things for nothing.
'I'm taking my time these days and not letting myself get under any pressure other than to just feel happy about myself and to work on my music.
'I want to show people I am a strong woman. I have a lot of great things ahead of me that I want to accomplish.
I feel positive and much happier, things are looking good again. I'm learning to relax and not place so much pressure on myself.'
Perhaps, though, the pressure is getting to her in Miami?
