We are one, minus one. 

Jennifer Lopez, who teamed up with Pitbull and Claudia Leitte to record the official anthem for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014, won't perform at Thursday's opening ceremony. 

"Regretfully, Jennifer Lopez will not be attending this year's World Cup opening ceremonies," her rep told CNN in a statement late Sunday night, without offering any further explanation. However, FIFA saysthat Lopez cannot perform at the event as planned due what they refer to as "production issues."

Lopez, Pitbull, and Brazilian star Claudia Leitte were scheduled to perform at the tournament's opening ceremony before the host team's first match against Croatia on Sao Paulo. FIFA announced that both Pitbull and Leitte would go ahead with the performance.

The 20th FIFA World Cup will be held in Brazil from June 12 through July 13. For a full World Cup 2014 broadcast TV schedule, click here.
