    Jennifer Lopez will not be performing at this year's World Cup opener after all.

    The "I Luh Ya Papi" singer's rep told E! News in a statement, "We can confirm the accuracy of FIFA's statement. Regretfully Jennifer Lopez will not be attending this year's World Cup opening ceremonies."

    It doesn't appear that the singer's absence from the opener had anything to do with her recent split with Casper Smart

    FIFA officials told the New York Daily News in a press release Sunday that J.Lo won't be able to perform the official World Cup song "We Are One" Thursday with Pitbull because of unspecified "production issues."

    Instead, the rapper will perform the song with Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte, who briefly sings on the single, when Brazil takes on Croatia later this week.

    Prior to the World Cup news, J.Lo flaunted her curves in a gold and black mini dress at the listening party for her forthcoming album, A.K.A. in collaboration with Beats by Dre hosted by Karen Civil with cocktails from Belaire Rosé.

    "The countdown is on!!! 10 days until #JLoAKA album release," the singer tweeted Saturday morning, along with a pic of herself in the outfit.

    The day before, E! News confirmed J.Lo broke up with her boyfriend after two years of dating.
