From Rich To Penniless: 12 celebs who have gone broke in the last 10 years… You’ll be surprised! (With Pictures)
4. Chris Tucker
It looks like that good sense of humor comes with bad money management skills. When we say Chris Tucker, you probably think of the Rush Hour movie franchise. The actor earned around $65 million for the trilogy, alongside the title of one of the highest paid actors at the time. His debts, on the other hand, piled up from way back; Tucker evaded state tax for almost a whole decade, accumulating a debt of $14.5 million dollars. Of course, his assets and money in the bank are not enough to pay the debt.
“Poor accounting and business management” were the reasons for this enormous debt, his representative had stated. There are only speculations and rumors about this debt; no confirmed statements of Tucker’s splurging or problems. His two mansions in Hollywood and Miami had to be sold to repay a part of the debt, and the actor has reportedly reached a deal with the IRS. He’s trying to rebound by appearing on a comedy show on Netflix.
