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."

Oh how they suck as a band , it must and is a slow news(?) day. They have always been a legend in their own minds.........and they are not the only ones, most bands whose members do not get along all seem to think this way ..."If it was not for me this band would not BE" I have always wondered why people stay together making music if they do not like each other, and of course it is all about the money.
I guess its easy to do, each guy comes in and lays down his track, never seeing each other, its on tour and when they write a tune together the fun begins. I like guys who get along and there are plenty of those, this is all EGO, thinking the band can't make it without them and of course they need money.

Oh please. Wes Borland was the only one that has any talent in the band and Fred brings the image (for better or worse) for the band. The other 3 guys are easily replaceable.

As from Slade Smiley, Fred Durst has to be the biggest douche in the history of music. LOL at how he walks around puffing out his chest as if he still really matters. Only thing that keeps this moron in the spotlight is TMZ. If it weren't for TMZ, we'd have thankfully forgotten this guy long ago.

I'm a fan. I don't want to pay money for a concert and two of the guys don't show up because they're high or drunk.

Once Wes Borland tells him to go F himself again, and he will, the Biscut will be limp forever.
