Chris Tucker sells LA mansion for $2.1 million


Chris Tucker has sold his Los Angeles mansion for $2.1 million.

The 'Silver Linings Playbook' actor collected a cool $1 million in profit after selling his palatial home in LA, California, for nearly double the $1,113,500 he paid for it in 1996, TMZ reports.

Chris put the pad on the market two years ago, but has had a long wait to find the right buyer for the home.

The 'Rush Hour' star's lavish 6,399 square foot mansion boasts five bedrooms, seven-and-a-half bathrooms, a pool, a spa, high ceilings, French doors and balconies overlooking sunny LA.

The 41-year-old comedian has faced numerous legal woes in recent years with the IRS filing a lien against the star for $11.5 million in unpaid taxes in July 2010.

The government body alleges Chris failed to pay federal taxes in 2001 - the same year he reportedly earned $20 million to star alongside Jackie Chan in 'Rush Hour 2' - as well as 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006.

Meanwhile, adding to Chris' troubles, the state of Georgia filed their own lien against Chris in February 2012 for $592,594.82 in unpaid taxes for the year 2007.

The movie star has had few starring roles since making a name for himself in 'Rush Hour' in 1998. He appeared in the film's sequel in 2001, and a third flick in 2007, but only re-emerged on the big screen last year alongside Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence 'Silver Linings Playbook'.
