MSN is reporting that actor-comedian Chris Tucker's financial woes are worsening. He is facing foreclosure on his $6 million Florida mansion after failing to keep up repayments, according to a report.

The Rush Hour star was hit with a staggering $11 million tax bill last year after allegedly falling behind on fees in 2001, 2002 and 2004 through 2006. The star is said to owe $4.4 million to SunTrust Bank, which holds the mortgage on the property.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Tucker's estate is located in the Bella Collina development, a nearly 2,000-acre community with waterfront homes and estates that overlook a massive golf course. 2007's Rush Hour 3 was Tucker's last film. He is currently on tour in the United States with upcoming dates in Houston, Seattle and Sacremento.

He may need to extend that tour and get back into acting if he intends to address his financial woes. We could be cynical, but why kick a man when he's down? We suppose the recession is just as hard on celebrities as it is on the rest of us.
