Also... you shot at ISO 2000. I'm assuming you did some noise reduction in the background? I mention that because I see some pixelation from the gradient changes in the BG. It happens to me when I overdo the noise removal then resize, by then there isn't enough data for a smooth transition from one hue to the next. The fix? Try to shoot in good light so you don't have to use high ISO, otherwise its very difficult to fix in PP. I've tried to re-introduce noise to try to fix this type of problem, but its hit and miss if it works in post processing. Good luck!
The variation lines in the BG are from a loss of information that allows the showing of the tiny gradients of color, something in your workflow robbed away info, heavy use of Shadow/Highlights control is often one good culprit. If your Histogram is not solid when you are working your image in PP and you see areas in the Histogram that show voids this is where you are missing the info
