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!

Beyoncé is putting it all out there!

Well, at least for her latest red carpet look she is.

On Tuesday, the Pretty Hurts singer SLAYED on the red carpet in a maroon number for the Tidal X event in NYC.

However, this particularly jaw dropping moment came shortly after the Grammy winner's father Mathew Knowles dished in a radio interview that the starlet is the same age as fellow performers Pink and Usher… which is 36-years-old and TWO years older than we thought.

What?! If Blue Ivy's grandpa's statements are true, Jay Z's lady wouldn't be the first celeb in Tinseltown to have lied about her age.

Still, Queen Bey didn't seem fazed by her former Dadager's comments to The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 as she confidently made her way in front of trigger happy photographers!

Not to mention, the Destiny's Child alum took to Instagram to flaunt her look to her legion of followers following her appearance.
