SunTrust Bank says the actor owes $4.4 million
Actor and comedian Chris Tucker is facing foreclosure on his multi-million dollar Florida mansion, according to court papers filed earlier this week.
“Rush Hour” trilogy star purchased the 10,000-square-foot lakefront home in 2007 for $6 million. The purchase was made just before the housing market too a nosedive later that year. SunTrust Bank reportedly filed papers against the actor in Circuit Court in Florida’s Lake County. While the bank says that Tucker owes over $4.4 million, the county property appraiser has the home currently assessed at $1.6 million.
According to the “Orlando Sentinel,” Tucker’s home has five bedrooms, three fireplaces, and a personal spa. It features an outdoor swimming pool that looks over a pool and the basement is made to look like a pirate ship.
While Tucker’s last film, 2007’s “Rush Hour 3,” took in over $140 million at the domestic box office, he hasn’t been in a film since. Earlier this year Tucker returned to stand-up comedy, touring theaters across the county.
