This is the kind of news I really don’t like sharing… When celebrities unfortunately arent able to keep up with the lavish lifestyles that they so wanted for themselves. This time, comedian Chris Tucker is wondering how he got himself in this mess – but then again I’m sure he probably already knows.
The 6 million dollar home that he owns on Lake Apopka in the pricey Bella Collina community of Florida is being now foreclosed on. He purchased the 10,000-square-foot property back in 2007.
Tucker’s was among eight luxury homes displayed during a “Street of Dreams” event at the height of the real-estate boom in 2006, when unimproved one-acre parcels in the budding enclave of the super rich sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Some lots sold for more than $1 million. The comedian’s abode boasts five bedrooms, three fireplaces, a personal spa in the master suite, an outdoor kitchen overlooking a pool, and an unusual basement designed like a pirate ship with a wooden deck, mast and sail. [... ] According to circuit-court documents, the Internal Revenue Service imposed a $11.5 million lien on the home last year in an effort to collect federal income taxes from Tucker, whose film resume includes the role of a con man in the 1997 Charlie Sheen action-comedy “Money Talks.” The court documents show Tucker’s monthly mortgage payment for the Bella Collina property was $25,812.50.
Seems like a brother will have to make a few more comedy stops and films to get himself back on the good-foot. And you know this MANNNNN SMH. Read the rest of this entry
