Chris Tucker is in serious financial trouble, but he’s at least kept his sense of humor.
The actor/comedian owes the IRS more than $11.5 million in unpaid taxes and his Florida mansion is facing foreclosure.
ABC News is reporting that SunTrust Bank filed papers against the actor in Circuit Court in Florida’s Lake County. The bank claims Tucker owes over $4 million dollars on the home which features five bedrooms, three fireplaces, and a personal spa. An outdoor kitchen overlooks a swimming pool, and a basement fit to resemble a pirate ship.

Despite the bad news Tucker is still able to joke about his situation. The Miami New Times reports that the ‘Rush Hour‘ actor made light of his financial problems during a recent show at the Fillmore Miami Beach.
“That’s the last time I let Wesley Snipes help me out with my taxes,” he joked before going in on bill collectors. “They calling you acting like you owe them the money personally! ‘We need the money.’ I don’t owe you sh*t! This is between me and the company!”
Tucker’s last movie was 2007’s ‘Rush Hour 3.’ He hasn’t appeared in a film since despite Ice Cube’s plea for him to reprise his role as “Smokey” in another ‘Friday‘ movie.
