President Obama will not make an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” this week, despite earlier reports.

The Commander-in-Chief was set to tape a “special segment” at Kimmel’s El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday, according to a TMZ story.

But a rep for “Jimmy Kimmel Live” tells Gossip Cop that Obama is “not booked for the show” — though would not explain why Secret Service and other personnel had reportedly been prepping for Obama.

Kimmel and Obama previously shared the stage at the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

One reason for not appearing could be the President getting backlash for appearing on Kimmel’s comedy show amid crises ranging from the MH17 disaster to the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.
