Comedian Chris Tucker is facing foreclosure on his stunning Florida mansion after the bank filed papers alleging he owes more than $4.4 million on the home he purchased for $6 million in 2007.
Best known for his starring role in the blockbuster hit Rush Hour movies, Tucker co-starred with Jackie Chan in the films, which grossed over $450 million in international sales.
The wise-cracking actor purchased the 10,000 square-foot waterfront home on Lake Apopka, Florida in the high end enclave Bella Collina and it has many high end amenities like a basement designed like a pirate ship with a wooden deck, mast and sail, five bedrooms, a personal spa in the master suite, three fireplaces, and an outdoor kitchen overlooking a pool according to the Orlando Sentinel.
The IRS imposed an $11.5 million lien on the home in 2010 in an effort to collect federal taxes from Tucker, and the court documents obtained by the Orlando Sentinel showed that his mortgage payment on the mansion was $25,812.50 a month. Tucker’s home is now assessed at a paltry $1.6 million.
According to the Times Union, Tucker’s scheduled comedy show on October 16 in New York has been canceled because of “unforeseen circumstances.”
