Chris Tucker Going Broke, Loses $6 Million Central Florida Home

He earned millions after starring in the smash hit Rush Hour series with kung fu king Jackie Chan.

The comedian could soon lose his $6 mansion in Central Florida, as he owes more than $4.4 million to the bank.

However he could still owe millions if the sale does go ahead, as it now has an assessed value of $1.6 million.

Chris, 39, bought the 10,000-square-foot waterfront home on Lake Apopka in the pricey Bella Collina community in 2007

He owes the cash to SunTrust Bank, according to foreclosure papers filed in Circuit Court in Lake County, the Orlando Sentinel said.

Cynthia Lurry, who acted as power-of-attorney for Tucker in the home sale, declined comment.

Ironically his luxury home was one of eight showed during ‘Street of Dreams’ event at the height of the real-estate boom in 2006.

At the time unimproved one-acre parcels sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars, while some lots sold for more than $1 million. It was marketed as an area for the super rich.

According to circuit-court documents, the Internal Revenue Service imposed a $11.5 million lien on the home last year in an effort to collect federal income taxes from Tucker.

That meant they would have the right to sell the property if he failed to meet his obligations.

The papers also show his monthly mortgage payment for the Bella Collina property was $25,812.50.

The house has five bedrooms, three fireplaces, a personal spa in the master suite and an outdoor kitchen overlooking a pool.

Once Chris announced he wasn’t cursing any more in his movies after he played Smokey in the Friday movie, it’s been a wrap for his career.
