Hova is safe for now!

U.S. District Judge Christina A. Snyder just dismissed a copyright infringement case that was brought against rapper Jay Z after a weeklong case.

The nephew of Egyptian composer Baligh Hamdi brought a lawsuit against the 45-year-old rapper as well as Timbaland because he used part of Hamdi's song Khosara Khosara in Big Pimpin'.

Snyder dismissed the case after Timbaland testified and said he believed they had the rights to use the Egyptian song. The judge ultimately ruled that the heir didn't have the authority to sue Jay Z over the song.

However, after the ruling came down, Pete Ross, the lawyer for the heir of Egyptian composer, said they will appeal the ruling and that he thought the judge's ruling was "completely wrong."

Though neither Jay nor Timbaland appeared in court, their attorneys were both obviously pleased with the outcome of the case.

There may still be another chapter in this story with the appeal, but based on this ruling, we wouldn't be surprised if it fell flat!

A young man joins a boy band, and becomes an international hit.

He tours the world, releases records and set hearts-a-flutter across the world of teen girls.

Then he eventually leaves that boy band and starts hanging out with rappers and eventually starts rapping.

No, we're not talking about Justin Timberlake, we're talking about the potential future career of One Direction's Zayn Malik!

…if 50 Cent has his way, at least!

Timbaland Hates The Aaliyah Biopic So Much He Went Meme Crazy Online!

Who would've thought that Lifetime's biopic Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B could've caused so much controversy?

The film has basically had issues since its inception, with Aaliyah's family totally not being cool with the movie. They didn't let a single song of hers appear in the film.

The family wasn't the only ones showing their disapproval, though… Aaliyah's former music producer and mentor Timbaland was OUTRAGED.

He was depicted in the film and must not have been happy with the results because he went NUTS on Instagram after the movie's Saturday debut.

He started by sharing a poster for the movie and wrote:
