American pop star Jennifer Lopez will not perform at the opening ceremony of 2014 FIFA World Cup with Cuban-American rapper Pitbull because of unspecified ‘production issues’, ARY News has learnt.
According to FIFA officials, they received an email from singer’s representatives stating “Regretfully, Jennifer Lopez will not be attending this year’s World Cup opening ceremonies.”The representative didn’t give the reason why she wouldn’t be joining the act.
FIFA said in a news release Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte will sing the official tune ‘We Are One’ with Pitbull before the opening game between Brazil and Croatia in Sao Paulo on June 12 (Thursday).
The message seemed a bit shocking as last week Lopez said that she was thrilled to perform at the opening ceremony.
Earlier, ‘J-Lo’ had also missed the official unveiling of plans for the song in January.
