The actor has a long history of financial problems. It all started after he signed a $40-million deal with New Line to star in the Rush House sequels.

Back in 2011, he was sued for foreclosure of his Florida home after being accused of defaulting on the mortgage. Tucker ended up losing the home in the suit.
