MONTVERDE — Comedian Chris Tucker, who starred as a wise-cracking L.A. police detective with martial-arts star Jackie Chan in the blockbuster “Rush Hour” film series, could soon lose his multimillion-dollar mansion in Central Florida.

Tucker, 39, bought the 10,000-square-foot waterfront home on Lake Apopka in the pricey Bella Collina community in 2007 for $6 million but owes more than $4.4 million to SunTrust Bank, according to foreclosure papers filed in Circuit Court in Lake County.

Cynthia Lurry, who acted as power-of-attorney for Tucker in the home sale, declined comment when reached today.

Tucker’s was among eight luxury homes displayed during a “Street of Dreams” event at the height of the real-estate boom in 2006, when unimproved one-acre parcels in the budding enclave of the super rich sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Some lots sold for more than $1 million.
