The “Last O.G.” star — who owns a 20,000-gallon fish tank — is worried about the health of his exotic animals after learning a Bronx Zoo tiger had tested positive for the respiratory condition a few days ago.

Host Hoda Kotb asked Morgan if he was “for real or just pretending,” prompting him to insist: “No, I’m for real man, this is real stuff!”
