DAYUUUUUUM! No wonder Chris Tucker has been back on the road doing stand-up. The residuals from Friday and Rush Hour must not have been enough to cover his whopping $25K monthly mortgage payments!
According to PEOPLE reports:
Rush Hour star Chris Tucker’s $6 million Florida mansion is in foreclosure, with more than $4.4 million owed to the bank, reports the Orlando Sentinel, citing papers filed in Circuit Court in Lake County.
Tucker, 39, bought the 10,000-sq.-ft. waterfront home on Lake Apopka, near Orlando, in 2007. The newspaper says the residence contains five bedrooms, three fireplaces, a personal spa, an outdoor kitchen overlooking a pool, and a basement outfitted to resemble a pirate ship, including the sail.
Court documents reportedly show an $11.5 million IRS lien on the home in 2011 in order to collect federal income taxes from Tucker, whose monthly mortgage payment, the documents also show, was $25,812.50.
There has been no comment from Tucker, but the Times Union of Albany, N.Y., reports that his comedy show scheduled in the city for this Sunday – and was a rescheduling of a postponed Sept. 3 performance – has been canceled because of “unforeseen circumstances.”
Damn shame… This just goes to show, it’s hard out here for everybody. But at the same time, what was this dude doing buying a home with a $25K mortgage in 2007???
Keep in mind when you are buying these crazy cribs you will also be spending a fortune on maintenance and TAXES. And Uncle Same don’t play!
Good luck with this bad situation Smokey.
