Hmmm, Gigi seems free as a bird to hang out with Louis Tomlinson's frenemy. WE KID!

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!

Hear it here first!
Zendaya dropped a new single called Close Up on an XM radio station in Dubai on Monday morning!
Ch-ch-check out a snippet of the new song (below)!!!
Could it be true?!
If Timbaland is to be believed, new music from Aaliyah might be on the way — and while the singer left us far too soon, there might be some new songs for us to enjoy and reminisce about her life!
Posting on Instagram late Sunday, the producer put up two pics of Aaliyah, including the one (above) that had the caption:
Maybe it's time to log off social media for a couple hours?
This time, the 43-year-old has taken to tweeting his own defense to the fallout, and, um, he's still doing some things wrong.
His tweet stream:
If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all!
Instead of respecting her wishes, he posted an image basically saying he's still going to refer to Caitlyn as Bruce.
The only thing different between the music producer and the former Nickelodeon star is that Timbaland did NOT delete his Facebook post at all and left the hurtful image up for the world to see.
He posted on Monday afternoon:
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.
…if 50 Cent has his way, at least!
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:
