Chris Tucker net worth: Chris Tucker is an American comedian and actor who has a net worth of $3 million. Chris Tucker was born in Atlanta Georgia on August 31, 1971. Tucker first became known as a performer on "Def Comedy Jam". His acting career began to take off in the mid-90s with roles in "House Party 3", "Friday", and "The Fifth Element". Tucker's career went to the stratosphere when he went on to co-star in Brett Ratner's hit "Rush Hour" trilogy with Jackie Chan. After the massive success of the first Rush Hour movie, Tucker demanded and received $20 million to appear in the sequel. He then negotiated a $40 million two-movie contract with New Line Cinema of which $25 million would be his salary for Rush Hour 3. Tucker also received 20% of the gross receipts of Rush Hour 3 which, when combined with his salary, made him the highest paid actor in the world at the time. Unfortunately Chris Tucker's good financial luck did not last forever. After a series of financial mistakes, Tucker found himself reportedly $11 million in debt. He faced foreclosure on his 10,000 square foot, $6 million Florida mansion and ended up oweing the IRS $11 million in taxes for the years 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2005. The mortgage on his Florida property was $4.4 million and Tucker stated publicly that he did not have enough income to pay his bills. Chris is still a viable Hollywood actor and talks are already underway for Ice Cube's production company to arrange another "Friday" film. He received positive reviews for his performance in the 2012 Academy Award winning movie Silver Linings Playbook. If the rumored Rush Hour 4 movie ends up happening at some point, that will clearly be a boon to Chris' wallet.
