Limp Bizkit

Fred Durst Threatens

to FIRE Original Members

4/1/2012 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

 Limp Bizkit comeback might be over before it begins
The Limp Bizkit comeback might be over before it begins ... because TMZ has learned Fred Durst is gunning hard to axe two of the original members.

The "Nookie" band recently signed a deal with Cash Money Records ... and had been planning to put out a new record in the very near future.

But we're told plans came to a grinding halt recently ... when original members DJ Lethal and drummer John Otto were informed that Fred had a "new vision" for the group ... and they weren't part of the vision.

Sources tell us ... Fred has been upset with the guys for a while ... claiming their partying habits didn't fit with his lifestyle.

We're told the guys have not been officially 86'd from the group ... but they feel it might be headed in that direction unless they work out their issues, stat.

TMZ reached out to DJ Lethal ... who told us, "We've worked together the last 4 years to bring Limp Bizkit back to where it is today ... and to just be thrown out on the street after the band gets a new deal and a new chance at life isn't cool."

He adds, "You can't push away the people who helped you get there. The fans should know that if 2/5 of the original band are not playing at the concerts, it wont be truthful to them."

It's so funny when musicians start out all hard-partying with a rock-n-roll attitude, then clean their life up and suddenly are all about being healthy and stuff. Like Niki Sixx, and dozens of others. Fred needs to realize that he was able to work with them before, and was still able to make personal changes in his own life, he can do it again. Don't become that guy that ruins everything because you want to eat sushi and do yoga every day Fred.

I always kind of liked Limp BIzkit back in the day, but I also thought they were all great and talendted musicians (aside from Fred and his annoying rapping voice). The musicians need to leave Durst and get a real singer.

First he'll fire them, and then he'll claim he had sex with them.

Fred Durst burned all his bridges. Jonathan Davis of Korn won't even return his calls and he got LB signed. Stick to karaoke bars Durst.

I always liked Limp Bizkit. They put on a great live show, full of energy like one big party. They ate still huge in every county in the world except the US now. Fred is a egomaniac and he needs to realize these guys are just important to the band as he is. Fred could retire today a vey wealthy man so it s funny when people say things like calling numbers at bingo halls or karaoke bars. Somehow he got into directing and surprisingly is more talented at that then singing. The rest of the Guys should ditch him and start a new one.

Look at all these posers. You know what their "limp bizkit" is, they got no wee wee at all. What a bunch of losers in a crappy band that sounds like %$#& and has never been good at anything. Hey Fred, great name for the band leader, go get Barney, George, Frank and Harry and just walk off a cliff.

These guys remind me of that looser that Brendon Fraiser played on Pirate Air or whatever the show was where he took over the radio station and it turned out he was a fraud and not a rock and roll guy at all and instead played dungeons and dragons. Yea, that's what these losers are like.

Look at the guy in the middle with his arms crossed, trying to look all bad @zz. He puts his hands under neath his biceps to make it look like he has big biceps. That's a old elementary school trick little boys would do.

Limp Bizkit hasn't been relevant since the 90's. They still wear outdated teenager clothes. Their 'comeback' is a farce.
