    After media speculation that he had gone missing for days, Lamar Odom was spotted driving near his home in the San Fernando Valley on Monday.

    The professional basketball player was driving to a local car wash in his white Mercedes SUV and was out and about for roughly 45 minutes.

    The rumor mill has been buzzing that he and wife of four years Khloé Kardashian Odom are heading for a split, but Kris Jenner told E! News exclusively last week that any divorce rumors are absolutely false.

    "Khloé and Lamar are absolutely not getting divorced," she said. "There's been no talk of divorce."

    And despite persistent chatter, friends of the couple aren't buying the cheating stories.

    "It just doesn't add up," one friend exclusively told E! News. "Whenever I see them together, they're very happy and in love."

    The outgoing 29-year-old has sent out a slew of signals to fans and the media since the reports first surfaced.

    Just last week she posted a sharp message on her Instagram account that definitely didn't mince any words.

    "Never judge someone without knowing the whole story. You may think you understand, but you don't," the message read.

    Then on Sunday, she vented on her Twitter account in a characteristically candid fashion.

    "Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk s--t about my family!," she wrote. "F--k you and shame on you! I'm too protective for this s--t!"

    On Monday, Khloé was spotted leaving a gym wearing her massive wedding ring. She held up her left hand (with the blindingly large sparkler) in an attempt to shield her face from the cameras.

    Khloé and Lamar tied the knot on Sept. 27, 2009, at a family friend's beautiful home in Los Angeles.

    The two have faced public scrutiny throughout their marriage, but both husband and wife have defended their relationship.

    In January, Khloé slammed the speculation, telling E! News that "things are really good with Lamar" but added that her husband was "so sensitive" to all the negative attention surrounding their marriage.
