Chris Tucker Loses Two Florida Mansions. The funnyman is trying to balance his huge financial debt.

Published December 11, 2011

Back in October, BET.com reported comedian Chris Tucker was on the verge of losing one of his Florida mansions to foreclosure. The actor is said to have owed more than $4.4 million on the home, which is located in Lake County, Florida.

 

A recent report announces Tucker has decided to walk away from this house and another one as well, due to financial issues. The first mansion was sold at an auction bid for $2 million and let the Rush Hour star off the hook regarding the debt on this property. TMZ says he initially bought the sprawling five-bedroom home for $6 million.

 

He sold another home for $1 million dollars, when he reportedly paid $1.5 million for it.

 

Tucker, 39, is getting rid of his extra homes, and presumably any dead weight, because he owes the government back taxes to the tune of $11.5 million.

 

In related news, Ice Cube recently confirmed he is working on a new Friday movie with the hopes of bringing the original cast back, including Tucker’s "Smokey" and Nia Long.
