Florida Mortgage Company to Chris Tucker: Pay Up!!

by at . Comments

Rush Hour star Chris Tucker hopefully understands the words coming out of his Florida home loan provider's mouth: His $6 million mansion is being foreclosured on.

The actor owes more than $4.4 million, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

Tucker bought the 10,000-SF waterfront home on Lake Apopka, near Orlando, in 2007. Sounds like an awesome crib ... if you take away the $11.5 million IRS lien.

According to government officials, that's the amount in federal income taxes owed by the 39-year-old, whose monthly Florida mortgage payment is $25,812.50.

There has been no comment on the topic from Tucker, although the star recently canceled at least one of his comedy shows due to "unforeseen circumstances."

The lesson: Even with Florida home loan rates at record lows, and the housing market ripe for buyers, don't jump into any financial agreement you can't afford.

Chris, you are my favorite actor, I miss you in movies. I hope you will be back soon, just keep the faith, remember faith is the substance of things hope for and the evidence of things not seen. There is not a comedian out here that is as funny as you are.
