Lamar Odom doesn't just think he can save his basketball career in Spain ... he also thinks he can save his marriage ... and to prove it, he rocked his wedding ring on his way out of the country.
Odom was all smiles as he rolled through LAX on Tuesday ... right before he boarded his plane to Espana, where he'll join a Spanish pro basketball team (Laboral Kutxa Vitoria).
But it was clear he wanted to make a statement about the state of his marriage to Khloe Kardashian -- by wearing the ring on his finger.
As we previously reported, Khloe already filed for divorce ... and wants out of the marriage.
Clearly, Odom is an optimist these days.

Michelle Rodriguez & Cara
2/18/2014 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Michelle Rodriguez and supermodel Cara Delevingne are acknowledging the obvious -- they're the hottest lesbian couple in the universe -- and to prove it they ate out last night.
Michelle and Cara were photographed leaving a London restaurant together, looking very coupley.
And to make it official -- before their date, Michelle told The Mirror they're an item, saying, "It's going really well. She's so cool. When we started hanging out, I just thought she was awesome, and we have the best time together."
35-year-old Michelle and 21-year-old Cara have been all over each other for 6 weeks now -- starting last month with a drunken makeout session courtside at a Knicks game -- so nothing fishy about this hookup.
Michelle's rep tells TMZ, the UK Mirror story is FALSE. The rep says Michelle never spoke to the Mirror.

As for furs, Lady Gaga agrees to disagree.

If you love little people, over-sexualized 21-year-olds AND marijuana -- Miley Cyrus has your back ... 'cause she is dealing pot paraphernalia on her tour.

Let's face it ... probably not a bad idea to smoke a fatty -- just to get through watching Miley perform faux fellatio on a dude in a Bill Clinton mask.
Just sayin' ...

For the 4th Time
2/15/2014 5:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Three-time divorcee Charlie Sheen is hopping back on the marriage wagon ... this time to former adult star Brett Rossi.
Sheen proposed Saturday morning after he flew Rossi to Hawaii on a private jet -- then bragged about the proposal to a local photog who snapped some pics.
Sources close to Sheen confirmed the engagement is for real ... but so far, no additional details.
Sheen was first married in '95 to model Donna Peele but the couple split up a year later. In 2002, Sheen tied the knot with Denise Richards ... but she surprisingly filed for divorce two years later while six months pregnant with their second kid.
Brooke Mueller got the lucky title of wife #3 in 2008 ... but they were divorced in 2011 after a tumultuous relationship.
For what it's worth ... sources close to Sheen tell us they're confident this relationship is different than the others -- and he's taking things incredibly serious this time.
