JLo Pulls Out Of World Cup Performance

Jennifer Lopez won’t open this year’s World Cup with Pitbull as previously planned due to “production issues.”

Mmm hmmm… Her rep tells E! News:

“Regretfully Jennifer Lopez will not be attending this year’s World Cup opening ceremonies.”

Instead, Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte will sing the official tune “We Are One” with Pitbull before Brazil takes on Croatia on Thursday in Sao Paulo, reports the NY Daily News.

JLo’s people insist it has nothing to do with her recent split from ex-boyfriend Casper Smart.

Dry your tears and watch her fierce video for “First Love.”
