Chris Tucker

Real Estate Disaster in Florida

7/28/2010 9:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It appears the real estate bubble exploded all over Chris Tucker -- the tax-troubled star is trying to sell his Florida mansion for $2 million ... even though he paid $6 million for it just three years ago!

According to public records, Tucker took out a $4.2 million loan to score the 8861 square foot home back in 2007 ... a home that includes 5 bedrooms, a wine cellar, pirate ship-themed home theater and a library with a SECRET ROOM! The home is located in swanky Montverde ... a suburb of Orlando.

Tucker owns multiple properties in California -- according to RealEstalker.com -- but it's unclear if he's looking to unload any of those as well.

As TMZ first reported, Tucker is dealing with some serious tax issues at the moment -- the IRS claims he owes more than $11 mil ... which makes the timing of this sale much more relevant.

Seriously, who is this dude? I can count on two digits how many films he has made. Erm... that would be Rush Hour I & II. How the fu.ck does one amass an $11 mil debt to the IRS especially if one hasn't worked in a long while?

Gobsmacked!

There is nothing swanky about Montverde, I live there!! Montverde is a small backwards, unfreindly town!!! The mayor hates his neighbors and they are stuck in the 80's.

Maybe Tucker should consider doing a movie more than once every five years.

He must live in Bella Collina Subdivision, located in Montverde FL. Yea, everyone's loosing their butts on that one, empty lots and houses. The subdivision is still practically vacant, he'll be lucky to get 1 million for his house.

Personally, I wouldn't mind being "stuck in the '80s". If there was a Hot Tub Time Machine, you betcha I would be on it "like flies to glue" (paying homage to one of my fave X songs from '89. D'ya know Exene Cervenka X lead singer, was once married to and had a son with Viggo Mortenson?)

Of course, nostalgia aside, I would bring all my Steam/CyberPunk fashion aesthetics with me and totally do exactly what Violator wound up doing when he stayed behind. /sigh

What is in the Secret Room of his library?

Then again, maybe a better question would be: what is in his library? It can´t be books because obviously this guy doesn't do a lot of reading.

Whatever    

No one is buying mansions. You can't get financing. Bring the price down under non-conforming loan limits and maybe you'll find some buyers. But also, mansions sort of suck right now anyway. Everyone overpaid for theirs and they bring a lot of tax costs, misery and heating bills. Go green, downsize!

Wow! How does he get that far behind without the government putting a freeze on his bank accounts until they get their money? Cripe I'm a nobody and got behind (filed taxes and didn't pay up for a couple months)and they threatened to take my wages from work. Maddening how the people with loads of money get away with this type of thing for so long.

Ugh! That master bedroom needs to be just blown up. Who in the hell would have decor like THAT? It's almost as bad as Elvis' jungle room. Gawdy and grotesque, dark and uncozy. Just horrible. He should be locked up for bad taste as much as anything.
