Chris Tucker Makes Bank on L.A. Mansion Sale


Listen up folks, Chris Tucker sold his L.A. mansion for almost a $1 million profit ... do you understand the words that are coming out of our mouth??? ONE MILLION DOLLARS.

The "Rush Hour" star purchased the 6,399-square-foot digs way back in 1996 ... right around the time his career was skyrocketing ... for $1,113,500.

Tucker decided to get rid of the place in 2011, but it took a while to find a buyer. Totally worth the wait though ... considering he sold it at the end of last month for $2.1 million. Cha-ching.

The crib is no joke either ... 5 bedrooms, 7.5 baths, high ceilings, french doors, balconies, pool and spa.

Now if he could just sell 11 more houses ... he could pay of all that tax debt.
