Actor/comedian Chris Tucker is reportedly in some serious financial trouble. But despite the trouble he’s in, from hefty unpaid taxes, he has kept his sense of humor.
The 39-year-old — who rose to fame alongside rapper Ice Cube in the 1995 film “Friday” — owes more than $11.5 million to the IRS in unpaid taxes … and is facing foreclosure on his Florida mansion.
“That’s the last time I let Wesley Snipes help me out with my taxes,” he’s quoted as saying. “They calling you acting like you owe them the money personally! ‘We need the money.’ I don’t owe you sh**! This is between me and the company!”
According to ABC News, SunTrust Bank filed papers against Tucker in Circuit Court in Florida’s Lake County this week, claiming he owes over $4 million dollars on the home.
The home boasts five bedrooms, three fireplaces, and a personal spa. An outdoor kitchen overlooks a swimming pool, and a basement fit to resemble a pirate ship.
Tucker purchased the 10,000-square-foot lakefront home in 2007 for $6 million, right before the housing market took a nosedive later that year.
It’s currently worth around $1.6 million.
Tucker’s last movie was 2007’s “Rush Hour 3.” Although it raked in more than $140 million in the U.S., he hasn’t appeared in a film since.
