Dua told her 87million followers that she will not be heading to the tournament, and has never been involved in any negotiations to perform there.

The Levitating singer also slammed Qatar for its human rights record.

The World Cup hosts have been scrutinised for their treatment of foreign workers and restrictive social laws.

Dua added she will only visit Qatar “when it has fulfilled all the human rights pledges it made” after being awarded the tournament in 2010.

She wrote: “There is currently a lot of speculation that I will be performing at the opening ceremony of the World Cup in Qatar.

“I will not be performing and nor have I ever been involved in any negotiation to perform.

“I will be cheering England on from afar and I look forward to visiting Qatar when it has fulfilled all the human rights pledges it made when it won the right to host the World Cup.

“One love, Dua x.”

Qatar has denied claims that workers have been exploited.

South Korean star Jung Kook, part of the band BTS, is currently the only act confirmed for the opening ceremony.

The likes of Calvin Harris, Sean Paul and Diplo are all set to perform at the Fifa Fan festival, which will take place throughout the course of the tournament.

Elsewhere, comedian Joe Lycett has said he will shred £10,000 cash if David Beckham does not pull out of a deal to be an ambassador for the World Cup.

It’s claimed Beckham will earn up £10million for doing so.

Lycett also vowed to donate £10,000 to charities supporting gay people in football if Beckham cancelled his deal.
