"With James at NAIA a few days ago," Malcolm shared in an Instagram post on Feb. 20. "On his way to LA for recording sessions and to visit his brother Andrew. That's it."

"Anything else is basura... Sorry to disappoint the fake newsmakers," the dad added, addressing rumors about his son's supposed departure.
