The paper quotes an unnamed source as saying: "She has been telling her doctor she feels under pressure and ill when she thinks about touring."

If her condition doesn't improve, the paper says the attacks could threaten Spears' planned world tour in support of her new album "Circus."

Spears' father, Jamie, has reportedly consulted doctors about her condition.

“Every time there is a crisis, Britney screams and cries and locks herself in her room," another source told the newspaper.
