Chris Tucker is facing foreclosure on his stunning Florida mansion after the bank filed papers alleging he owes more than $4.4 million on the home he purchased for $6 million in 2007.
Tucker purchased the 10,000 square-foot waterfront home on Lake Apopka, Florida in the high end enclave Bella Collina and it has many high end amenities like a basement designed like a pirate ship with a wooden deck, mast and sail, five bedrooms, a personal spa in the master suite, three fireplaces, and an outdoorkitchen overlooking a pool according to the Orlando Sentinel.
The IRS imposed an $11.5 million lien on the home in 2010 in an effort to collect federal taxes from Tucker, and the court documents obtained by the Orlando Sentinel showed that his mortgage payment on the mansion was $25,812.50 a month. Tucker’s home is now assessed at a paltry $1.6 million.
