Terrence Howard misses his TV son Jussie Smollett.

The actor/amateur mathematician got emotional while talking to Extra’s Billy Bush about the actor’s early exit from Empire on Wednesday’s show.

Recent Hollywood Walk Of Fame inductee Howard, 50,  was visibly upset when he told the formerly disgraced TV presenter: ‘Jussie has been the heart of the show. He’s been my son for six years and I miss my son.’

‘We can’t help it, this is real life that we’re talking about,’ the Terrence went on as he dabbed tears from his eyes.

‘We’re not talking about dingleberries and applesauce,’ he went on.

Jussie was famously dismissed from the Fox show after claiming he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack back in January 2019. He was subsequently accused of orchestrating the incident himself to drum up publicity.

The 37-year-old actor was later indicted on 16 counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report, but the charges were later dropped by the Chicago Police Department. 

Jussie is not out of the clear, however. The FBI is currently looking into why the charges were dropped and if any corruption was involved.

In addition, the city of Chicago is looking to recover the $130k-plus they spent while investigating Smollett’s claims. Jussie has previously declared he has zero plan to pay out.

Smollett played Howard’s son Jamal Lyon on the music-centric Fox hit.

But his character, the middle son of hip-hop mogul Lucious Lyon, was written off the series in the wake of the scandal.

While Terrence was fondly missing Jussie, he’s also turned heads recently with some bizarre metaphysical opinions.

Terrence recently announced he was stepping away from acting to focus on his ‘scientific’ endeavors. 

After previously suggesting he could prove ‘one times one equals two’, Howard told people listening in on the Emmys red carpet that he was going to ‘build [the planet] Saturn without gravity.’

He has since set up a website explaining his far-out theories.
