Limp Bizkit

Fred Durst Threatens

to FIRE Original Members

 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."

I love how limp bizkit and fred durst actually take themselves seriously and think that people are desperatly awaiting their return lol. Limp bizkit getting back together is about as exciting as a lecture on archeological impericism...Give it up, Fred. Go write children's books or something, maybe then your childish vocabulary will actually have a purpose. The world doesnt need another limp bizkit album full of crappy generic, wanna be guitar riffs and fred durst screaming out "YEA!" and "bring it on!!" in the background every few minutes.

Damn. Hate to see the band go down all cause of Fred. I hope they work things out and stay rock rather than hip-hop with the Cash Money crowd.
