A spokesperson from the American cough and cold medicine Theraflu has said that they 'in no way endorse' Kanye West's new single, also entitled 'Theraflu'.

The song, which debuted earlier this week, is a collaboration between West and DJ Khaled. Speaking to gossip site TMZ, a rep from Theraflu said of the track, in which West sings of his love for new girlfriend Kim Kardashian:

We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner.


TMZ also states that though Theraflu have not mentioned suing West, they point out that the company use the terms 'image' and 'likeness' in their statement, words which are often used in legal proceedings.

West and DJ Khaled previously hit the studio together when West provided a turn on Khaled's 2008 single 'Go Hard', and are also set to work together on Khaled's forthcoming new album 'Kiss The Ring', which is expected to be released this year.

Kanye West will be heading to the UK this summer with Jay-Z to tour their 'Watch The Throne' project. The pair only released their debut album as 'The Throne' last year, but Jay-Z has previously hinted that their second release will be out this year.

He said of his and West's future plans: "We – I say 'we' because I'm in Throne mode – we're in a great place creatively. You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year… We've really found our zone."

Kanye West/Jay-Z will play:

London O2 Arena (May 18, 19, 20, 21, 22)
Manchester Evening News Arena (June 11, 12)
Birmingham's LG Arena (13, 22)
Sheffield Motorpoint Arena (21)
