News: Chris Tucker Owes IRS 11.5 Million, In Jeopardy of Losing Florida Mansion


You can run from the law, you can run from gangsters, but as most Americans know – you can not run away from the IRS.

Unfortunately, actor Chris Tucker had to learn the hard way as he is now in jeopardy of losing his Florida mansion and possibly serving jail time.

Just this week, papers have been filed in Circuit Court in Lake County claiming that Tucker owes $4.4 million to the bank after buying the $6 million home on Lake Apopka, near Orlando, in 2007, according to the Orlando Sentinal.

The home contains five bedrooms, three fireplaces, a personal spa, an outdoor kitchen overlooking a pool, and a basement resembling a pirate ship, complete with a sail and the actor was paying a monthly mortgage of $25,812.50.

Tucker is also believed to owe $11.5 million to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) after failing to pay taxes in 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006.

I hope he has a rainy day stash to clear up this mesh. Of course MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay Tuned.
