Chris Tucker Facing Foreclosure on Florida Mansion

Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images(LAKE APOPKA, Fla.) -- Despite making tens of millions of dollars for appearing in the Rush Hour movies, actor and comedian Chris Tucker is facing foreclosure on his multi-million dollar Florida mansion, according to court papers filed earlier this week.

The star of the Rush Hour trilogy and the comedy Friday purchased the 10,000-square-foot lakefront home in 2007 for $6 million.  The hefty home purchase was made just before the housing market took a nosedive later that year.

SunTrust Bank reportedly filed papers against the actor in Circuit Court in Florida’s Lake County.  The bank says Tucker owes over $4.4 million.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Tucker’s estate is located in the Bella Collina development, a nearly 2,000-acre community with waterfront homes and estates that overlook a massive golf course.

Tucker’s home reportedly features five bedrooms, three fireplaces, and a personal spa.  An outdoor kitchen overlooks a swimming pool, and the basement is fit to resemble a pirate ship, according to the Sentinel.

Though his last film -- 2007′s Rush Hour 3 -- was a sizable hit, taking in over $140 million at the domestic box office, he hasn’t been featured in a film since.  Earlier this year, Tucker returned to stand up comedy, touring theaters across the U.S.
