Cher's request for a temporary conservatorship over son Elijah Blue Allman has been denied.
The request was based on Allman's alleged substance abuse and mental health issues.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Jessica A Uzcategui denied the petition.
Allman proved he managed his finances and remained drug-free, according to the judge.
Allman underwent several drug tests before the hearing.
Conservatorships are typically granted for individuals unable to make decisions due to mental illnesses.
Cher's concerns about Allman's mental health were voiced during the hearing.
The judge acknowledged Cher's concerns but found them based on hypotheticals and fears.
The judge doesn't question Cher's concern for her son.
Cher's lawyers may still pursue a larger, long-term conservatorship at a hearing in March.
The denial was not a dismissal of concerns but a decision based on current circumstances.
Britney Spears apologized to Justin Timberlake for some of the content of her memoir, "The Woman in Me", and made her Instagram account private.
