Paris Saint-Germain has threatened rap artist M.I.A. with legal action if the singer does not stop using the French soccer club’s image in a video clip for her song "Borders."
In the video describing the ordeal of refugees, the British musician is seen wearing a PSG shirt emblazoned with the club’s logo and its main sponsor, whose slogan has been changed to "Fly Pirates."
On her Twitter account, M.I.A. published a letter written in December by PSG deputy CEO Jean-Claude Blanc to her label Universal Music asking "to cease the broadcasting" of images showing the PSG jersey and to refrain from using the club’s image.

The PSG communication department tells The Associated Press it wants to protect its image and says no legal action has been taken so far.
