Chris Tucker's $6 Million Home Set To Go Into Foreclosure

In the midst of his much talked-about comeback comedy tour, comedian Chris Tucker's $6 million 10,000-square-foot Florida estate is reportedly at risk of going into foreclosure. According to foreclosure papers obtained by the Orlando Sentinel, Tucker owes $4.4 million to the bank and has a $11.5 million IRS lien on his home to collect federal taxes owed by the actor.

The "Rush Hour" star's lush Lake Apopka residence, which was purchased in 2007, features five bedrooms, three fireplaces, a personal spa in the master suite, an outdoor kitchen and a pirate ship-themed basement. The estate was also among eight luxury homes displayed in 2006 during a "Street of Dreams" event held at the height of the real-estate boom.

Cynthia Lurry, who helped Tucker to purchase the Florida property, was contacted by the paper but declined to comment.

In other news, Tucker's October 16 Albany, N.Y., show at the Palace Theatre has been canceled due to "unforeseen circumstances," according to LiveNation.
