Judge Joe Brown Benched By State Bar Unfit to Practice ... For Now

6/29/2016 7:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0629-joe-brown-tmz-01Judge Joe Brown is incapable of practicing law because of some sort of disability that renders him either physically or mentally impaired.

The Tennessee Supreme Court has put Brown on inactive status, meaning he cannot represent clients.  As for why, Brown's production company says, "Judge Brown is suffering from what hopefully will prove to be a temporary disability as a result of complications following from Type II Diabetes and the effects of prescribed medications for the condition, combined with hypertension and stress."

A Tennessee disciplinary official tells us, the trigger for benching the former TV court judge was a disciplinary hearing. Brown was under fire for blowing a gasket at a judge in a Memphis juvenile court. The Tennessee Supreme Court determined Brown's disability made him unable to defend himself in the disciplinary hearing, so he was placed on inactive status.

We tried reaching Brown for comment ... so far no word back.

0629-calvin-harris-snap-01No one doubted Calvin Harris would have no trouble attracting women, but most people assumed he'd try to score one at a time.

Calvin posted this pic of him on a private yacht, surrounded by hot women.

He also posted what he called a motivational message, although the pic is more motivating than the video.

Dennis Quaid Wife Files for Divorce ... Again

6/28/2016 9:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0628-dennis-kimberly-quaid-getty-3-1Dennis Quaid and his wife are heading for divorce for the second time ... TMZ has learned.

Kimberly Quaid filed the divorce petition Tuesday in L.A. according to Dennis, who was working in Vancouver on his show Crackle's "The Art of More" at the time, but it's clear this was NOT a blindside. In a joint statement, Dennis and Kimberly tell TMZ ... "After careful consideration, we have decided to end our 12 year marriage. The decision was made amicably and with mutual respect toward one another."

Kimberly first called things off back in March of 2012 ... only to change her mind a couple months later and withdraw the divorce filing.

Dennis and Kimberly have been married since 2004. They made it through tragedy when their twins were born in 2007 at Cedars Sinai, and staffers mistakenly gave the infants a near fatal dose of Heparin.

Sources connected to the couple tell us much of the split has been sorted out already -- including the divvying up of assets -- and they plan to share custody of their now 8 year-old kids, Thomas and Zoe.

The couple added, "We will always remain great friends and devoted partners in raising our children."

'Star Wars' 'Death Troopers' ... The New B-Day Clowns!

6/29/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0628-death-trooper-rogue-one-star-wars-YOUTUBE_LUCAS_FILM-01Make room for a new villian on the 'Star Wars' block -- Lucasfilm is finally prepping to cash in on the legendary "Death Trooper" character.

Lucasfilm just filed docs in Europe to secure rights to make and sell all "Death Troopers"-related gear -- clothing, footwear, toys, games, birthday party paper hats and favors ... even Christmas tree stands. Nothing says happy holidays like a DEATH Trooper under your tree!

The DTs first appeared in the 'Star Wars Legends' novel, but there's heavy fan speculation they'll debut onscreen in 'Rogue One.' No less an authority than Wookiepedia believes this brief image from the trailer is an actual DT.

The merchandising strategy seems to back up that theory -- plus, Lucasfilm pulled the same move earlier this year with the "Shadow Trooper." 

Lotsa troopers in that far, far away galaxy, eh?

French Montana I'll Cure Your Need for Speed

EXCLUSIVE

French Montana is putting people in the driver's seat of his favorite exotic sports cars, virtually ... which means there's zero chance you'll get nailed with a ticket.

IM3 Gaming Studios, the same folks who designed The Game's "Block Wars," modeled French's new mobile app, "Speed Gods" ... after the famous Gumball 3000 celeb race.

We're told players get to race through NYC, Miami, L.A. and Vegas streets in Lambos, BMW i8s and other fancy whips. The project's personal for French -- who rolls in Maseratis and Ferraris on the reg.

0628_french_montana_ferrari_instagram_subHis pals Diddy, DJ Khaled and Rick Ross make cameos in the game and there's an homage to his late protege, Chinx Drugz.

The app drops July 15 and, like Game's app, it's free -- but add-ons will cost you .99 cents to $99.

Apps and emojis -- hip-hop's new gold chains and Henny.

Mark Zuckerberg I Spent $100 Million ... Damn Straight, I'm Building This Wall

6/28/2016 2:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0628-mark-zuckerberg-new-fence-yard-hawaii-SPLASH-01

Mark Zuckerberg's 6' stone wall around his $100 million Kauai property has blocked out the Pacific Ocean to neighbors ... some of whom are livid.

The Facebook founder bought the 750-acre estate in 2014 and now wants to shore it up, but a 5'8" neighbor for one is furious, because now she can't see water.

Some neighbors claim they've tried reaching out to Zuckerberg, to no avail.

TMZ contacted the zoning department in the area and we were told no one has lodged a formal complaint and there is no investigation.

We contacted someone from the Planning Dept. and turns out Zuck has every right to build a 6' wall if he wants ... and he wants.

Kanye West 'Famous' Naked Celebs Get Mini-Mized

EXCLUSIVE

0628-mini-kanye-photoKanye West's naked homage just got weirder, courtesy of showman Jeff Beacher ... who re-shot the image from the "Famous" music video -- complete with himself as Kim Kardashian!

Never one to miss a chance to promote -- Jeff got some of the stars from Beacher's Madhouse together under the sheets for the hysterical shot. Rumor is the Madhouse is coming back to Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel soon ... so, we're guessing Jeff saw this as the perfect way to introduce ... mini-Taylor Swift!

No one from Kanye's "Famous" image was spared in the spoof. Amber Rose got the blow-up doll treatment, and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is merely a skeleton. 

Ray J got the shortest end of the stick though.
