Fred Durst -- the once angry guy who created "Limp Bizkit" -- is actually a sucker for sentimentality 'cause he just can't part with his famous red baseball cap ... even though it reeks like a blood fart.*

Durst got all nostalgic on us as he was leaving Craig's in West Hollywood ... when we asked whatever happened to the iconic red Yankees cap he used to wear backward on his melon.

Fred told us he's still got the hat -- even though it stinks really bad.

But that's not the reason he'll NEVER wear it again.

*Fun fact -- Blood Fart was a band name Durst considered before settling on Limp Bizkit

DJ Lethal Sued

By Larry H. Parker

(The $2.1 Million Guy!)

The odds are stacked against Limp Bizkit member DJ Lethal in a brand new fender bender lawsuit -- because the woman he allegedly rear ended is represented by iconic personal injury superstar Larry H. Parker (he got one guy $2.1 million!).

The woman -- Suraj Kayastha -- filed docs in L.A. County Superior court Nov. 5th, claiming she was driving on the 101 last December when Lethal (real name Leor Dimant) smashed into her car.

According to docs, filed by LARRY H. PARKER (he'll fight for you!), the alleged victim suffered physical injuries, loss of wages, and damages to her car ... and she's suing for an undisclosed amount.

Which is bad news for Lethal ... because according to Larry H. Parker's legendary commercials that have been running in L.A. for more than 20 years, Parker wins 91% of his cases ... and has recovered more than $1 BILLION in collective settlements for his clients.



But Lethal's not scared, telling TMZ, "It was a fender bender. No one got hurt. Cops were on the scene and no one complained of injuries. I had no idea there was even a lawsuit."

Lethal also skewers Larry Parker, telling us, "That Dude must be hurting for cash taking on a fender bender. I haven't  seen a commercial from him in years. That commission on the 2.1 million guy must be long gone on hair plugs and Viagra."

Limp Bizkit is not dead ... in fact, it's very much alive ... this according to lead singer Fred Durst, who tells us his band will be dropping a brand new single "really soon actually."

Durst was leaving Mr. Chow in Bev Hills last night and told us the band is currently recording an album with Cash Money Records ... adding, "It's off the hook man."

As for the new single, Fred wasn't specific about a release date ... but promises, "It's gonna knock you out man."

Fred Durst Victim

Speaks Out

10/6/2007 1:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

fdurst-1In August 2006, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst was slapped with assault charges after allegedly hitting two people with his car -- and now one of his alleged victims is talking. 

Robert Chadwick told CelebTV.com that he and a friend were leaving his mother's Hollywood Hills home when he felt their car get a bump from behind. "I turn around and there's a man getting out of a new BMW convertible. ... He was combative and nasty and insulting from the get-go. He was looking for a fight. He's a scary guy," said Chadwick of Durst.

Chadwick, who is suffering from colon cancer, said he had just returned from a doctor's appointment when the incident with Durst occurred. Fred was charged with seven misdemeanor counts, including assault with a deadly weapon (his car) -- and battery. This past August, Durst plead no contest to all seven charges, and avoided jail time. Instead, he received 20 hours of community services.

Said Chadwick,"Mr. Durst ends up with a small fine and picking weeds by the road or something. You don't even have to be much of a celebrity to get special justice in L.A."
