Chris Tucker

Dumps TWO Florida Mansions

Chris Tucker is cutting his losses -- shedding two massive homes in Florida to help dig himself out of his financial hole ... TMZ has learned.

Tucker got lucky with the first property -- an 8,861 square foot, 5-bedroom waterfront home in Lake County -- successfully negotiating a short sale before the bank planned to foreclose on it last month.

Chris' bank accepted a $2 million bid for the house -- satisfying the actor's debt -- even though he allegedly owed $4.4 million on the property before selling it. Considering Tucker bought the place for $6 million, it was a great deal for whoever just snatched it off the market.

In October, Tucker sold the other Florida pad for $1,050,000 ... much less than his $1.5 million asking price.

But any money is good money at this point -- as we previously reported, Tucker still allegedly owes Uncle Sam $11.5 million in back taxes. Good thing they're making another "Friday."

I can't understand how all these celebs, wanna be celebs and everyone else in the entertainment field always wind up owing Uncle Sam back taxes. Don't they have accountants to handle their taxes and make sure they are paid on time.....lol....guess not.

Do we really consider him an "actor"..he's made like one movie in 10 years. Which is probably why he is so broke.

Friday can't even save him. Just like Craig couldn't save him from Big Worm.

Unless they're rental properties why should Chris Tucker have TWO (2) "massive" homes in Florida? Say MC Hammer?

How the hell is Chris Tucker supporting himself?He's only made 2 films in the last 10 years.He must have stretched the hell out of those checks to still have had 2 houses and has not had to file for bankruptcy, even though he hasn't "worked" in 5 years.
