The Associated Press had previously mistakenly mixed up the pair
Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has clarified that he is not the same person as US murder suspect Robert Durst.
Confusion recently arose when The Associated Press mistakenly mixed up the pair, issuing a press release that read: “An arrest warrant was issued for the former Limp Bizkit frontman and he was rebooked in the Orleans Parish Jail on Monday under two new charges”.
Associated Press were later forced to release a statement correcting their mistake, stating that they had “reported erroneously that Robert Durst is a member of a band. He is a real estate heir; Fred Durst is the former frontman of Limp Bizkit.”
Now, the singer has made light of the situation by posting an image to Instagram that shows him wearing an official Limp Bizkit hoodie that displays the message “Not Robert” on the front. The hoodie has not yet been made available to buy.
Robert Durst is the son of New York real estate mogul Seymour Durst. He has been charged with the 2000 murder of Susan Berman and has been suspected of previous killings in the past. Durst recently appeared in HBO documentary series The Jinx, in which it is claimed that he muttered that he had “killed them all”.
Meanwhile, Fred Durst’s Limp Bizkit bandmate Wes Borland recently criticised his own fanbase. Ahead of the group’s appearance at the ShipRocked Cruise, he described their audience as “roided out tribal tattooed spray tanned Jell-O shot filled bohunks”.
Limp Bizkit’s latest album ‘Stampede of the Disco Elephants’ was due for release last year but has since been delayed. In June 2014 the band put out their latest single ‘Endless Slaughter’ as a cassette-only release.
