South Korean pop sensation Psy has warned fans in Israel not to believe rumours suggesting he has booked two gigs in the country later this month (Jul13).

The Gangnam Style hitmaker was said to have signed up to play concerts in Tel Aviv and Eilat in exchange for $250,000 (£161,000).

However, he has now taken to his Twitter.com page to warn fans not to get their hopes up as he has no set plans to perform in the country as of yet.

Psy writes, "There are false rumours of my appearance in Israel in July. I will not be there but look forward to seeing all my fans in Israel soon. Shalom (peace)," before joking, "What is shalom... my manager told me about it. Should I believe him?"

The rapper might not be scooping that six-figure pay cheque, but he has hit a major milestone on YouTube.com as his channel surpassed the three billion views mark this week (ends14Jul13).
