Actor/Comedian Chris Tucker Faces Foreclosure on Home

Reports say that actor/comedian Chris Tucker is facing foreclosure on his $6 million Central Florida mansion after failing to keep up repayments. The 'Rush Hour' star was hit with a $11 million tax bill last year after allegedly falling behind on fees in 2001, 2002 and 2004 through to 2006.

According to theOrlando Sentinel, Tucker will have to sell his $6 million home, which has a monthly mortgage payment of almost $26,000. Tucker is said to owe $4.4 million to SunTrust Bank in relation to his home.

Tucker bought the 10,000-sq.-ft. waterfront home on Lake Apopka, near Orlando, in 2007. The house 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.

There has been no comment from Tucker, but the Times Union of Albany, N.Y reports that his comedy show scheduled in Albany for this Sunday has been canceled because of "unforeseen circumstances."
