Jennifer Lopez had composed the song in synch with rapper Pitbull and Claudia Leitte. She was to sing the song out loud in Sao Paulo. But things just weren’t supposed to go that way. The reason given for the super starlet’s change of plans was production problems.

The FIFA World Cup opening ceremony in Sao Paulo will be about half an hour long and will have over 600 artists showing their true colors at the World Cup platform. Of course, Jennifer Lopez will be conspicuously missing from the scene.
"For production issues, Jennifer Lopez, one of the artists of the official song 'We Are One,' will not be able to perform at the FIFA World Cup opening ceremony," FIFA said in a statement.
Pitbull, with whom she recorded the song, however did not let the withdrawal of Jennifer affect his positivity for the event. He mentioned that Brazil was an absolutely lovely nation of wonders and that music held a universal message for all the people of the world.
"To be performing 'We Are One' to the world, especially in such a beautiful country like Brazil, is going to be a lot of fun. But more than this, it is going to show the world that music is the universal language," Pitbull said in a statement released by FIFA. Over 60,000 eager spectators will get to see the sports extravaganza.
Meanwhile, Jennifer’s ex, Casper Smart is at the end of his tether with a transsexual model who has accused him of flirting and engaging in hanky-panky with him/her some time back. This news of the double life of Casper is something which few knew about.
Xristina Marie is the hermaphrodite who claims that Casper horsed around with him/her a few weeks before he went “splitsville” with Jennifer. Casper completely denies all the charges of infidelity and has even said that he will file a lawsuit against the tell-all transsexual.
"There is no truth to any meeting or physical encounter. I am weighing my options on the appropriate action to take against Xristina Marie and/or The Sun," Smart tells E! News.
Jennifer and Casper met a few years ago and had been seeing each other on and off again. Their dating timeline began after Marc Anthony left Jennifer. But now the couple quit dating.
However, a source confirmed E! News on Friday that "They were hoping to be more low key about things. He was slowly going to move out and that would be it."
But despite the breakup, the two are still on speaking terms and even good friends. In fact, they might get back together again some time in the future.
"She will definitely still keep things civil and actually still loves him," an insider said. "The hard part is the kids love him too. He has become a part of her family."
