Lamar Odom was spotted driving his SUV near his home in the San Fernando Valley on Monday.

As TMZ first reported …Khloe kicked Odom out of the house last Wednesday when he rejected her attempt to stage an intervention — hoping to convince him to get treatment for his addiction to crack cocaine.

But 2 interesting signs from Lamar’s outing Monday — he was still wearing his wedding ring … and he was spotted driving into the gated community where he and Khloe live.

According to sources contacted by TMZ, Lamar’s drug use isn’t anything new.

Sources connected to a Westin hotel in Memphis tell TMZ … in March of 2012, shortly before Lamar was cut from the Mavs, he stayed in one of the guest rooms while his team was in town playing the Grizzlies.

Our sources say when Lamar left, hotel employees found major carpet damage … including quarter-sized burn marks. The damage was so bad, the hotel had to replace the carpeting in the room.

Our sources say hotel employees also found white powder on the desk blotter and the room reeked of noxious smoke.  Our sources say it was obvious there was serious drug use going on in the hotel room.

The Westin is one of numerous hotels where NBA players stay when they’re on the road. TMZ has contacted a number of these hotels in various cities. We’ve learned from several hotel employees … they had complained about the state of the rooms when Lamar left — similar to what happened in Memphis — and this was while he was playing for the Lakers.

Our sources say no one on the Mavs knew Lamar was a substance abuser while he was on the team, but everyone knew something was seriously wrong with him.

We’re told that during at least part of the time he was playing for the Mavs, Lamar was smoking Oxycontin and cocaine.

Odom’s problems were so severe, he was cut from the Mavs mid-season and paid in full just so he would go away.

This is all so sad.
