Looks like Jennifer Lopez will not be joining Pitbull in Brazil after all.

CNN reports that the "First Love" singer has pulled out of her FIFA World Cup opening ceremonies performance.

"Regretfully, Jennifer Lopez will not be attending this year's World Cup opening ceremonies," her rep told CNN in a statement late Sunday night.

According to the news site, her rep did not offer a reason for this last minute decision, but The Guardian reports it is due to unspecified "production issues."

Lopez was scheduled to perform "We Are One (Ole Ola)" alongside Pitbull and Claudia Leitte at the World Cup's opening ceremony before the event's first match on Thursday.
