"Maybe it's time for album number two and a lot less bull. I can't seem to win. I'm not sure I want to come back to this," the Sunday Mirror
claims Jessie J told a friend.
BBC One controller Danny Cohen has reportedly offered to double her £200,000 salary next season amid growing concerns over the show's ratings.
"The show is in turmoil and needs to keep somebody like Jessie who attracts kids who will vote. Danny's told Jessie he wants her back and he can offer her more. He is aware she is not happy with the show and the backlash against her," a source said.
"She just thinks maybe it's best that she concentrates on her second album and doesn't get too wrapped up in The Voice
, especially if it's damaging her reputation.
"Jessie doesn't need to make a decision yet but she's considering her options. She doesn't want people to forget she's a singer."
Fellow coach Sir Tom Jones admitted that it would be "a lot easier" for him to return for a second series if Jessie J does, as the pair get on well.
Host Holly Willoughby dismissed claims that The Voice
UK is in crisis and said people shouldn't think Jessie J is a "nightmare" just because she is a "strong woman".
"I'd love to come back. I would be gutted if [Jessie J] left - she's my favourite judge," Willoughby told the Daily Star Sunday
. "I hold her responsible for being the gel that holds the panel together so well. She's just dedicated and passionate."
