Fred Durst Early life
At the age of one, Durst relocated to a farm in Cherryville, North Carolina after first been born in Jacksonville, Florida as Frederick Allen Mayne III. After her second marriage to local police officer Bill Durst, she had him rechristened as William Frederick Durst. Durst’s parents soon welcomed his half-brother Cory Durst into the world. He relocated to Gastonia, North Carolina, in the fifth grade and attended Hunter Huss High School until he graduated.
Durst experienced bullying as a youth, which he integrated into his music. At the age of 12, Durst developed an interest in heavy metal, punk rock, hip hop, and breakdancing. He started to DJ, beatbox, skate, and rap. After serving in the Navy for two years (1988–1990), Durst returned back to Jacksonville with his father where he worked as a tattoo artist and gardener while coming up with the idea for a group that would incorporate rock and hip-hop influences.
Fred Durst Career
Formation of Limp Bizkit (1994–1998)
Durst, Malachi Sage, Sam Rivers on bass, and Rivers’ cousin John Otto played and created three songs in 1994. Wes Borland, a guitarist, later joined. In order to turn off listeners, Durst gave the band the name Limp Bizkit. After performing covers of Paula Abdul’s “Straight Up” and George Michael’s “Faith” at concerts, Limp Bizkit gained a cult following in the underground music scene.
Durst later invited Korn to his residence when they both were in town as Sick of It All’s opening act. He was successful in getting bassist Reginald Arvizu to hear the song demos for “Pollution,” “Counterfeit,” and “Stalemate.” Limp Bizkit, who were unsigned at the time, were joined by Korn to two tours, expanding the band’s fan base. Turntablist DJ Lethal, previously of the hip hop group House of Pain, joined the group; Durst’s differences with Borland caused the guitarist to leave and later return to the group.
Limp Bizkit released their debut album, Three Dollar Bill, Y’all, in 1997 on Flip Records, a division of Interscope Records, to lukewarm reviews. Durst first met the band Staind on October 23, 1997, but tension rapidly developed between the two due to disagreements about the record cover. Prior to Staind’s appearance, Durst unsuccessfully tried to have them removed from the concert lineup; nevertheless, after seeing them perform, he was so impressed that he signed them to Flip/Elektra, co-produced their subsequent album, Dysfunction, and recorded a demo with them.
Durst and DJ Lethal were requested to appear on the song “Bleed” from the self-titled debut of Max Cavalera’s new band Soulfly after Limp Bizkit ended a tour with the band Deftones. Durst and DJ Lethal were formerly in the band Sepultura. Cavalera claimed that director Ross Robinson had advised him to collaborate with Durst. Durst also appeared on the Follow the Leader album by Korn. B-Real of Cypress Hill’s label forbade Jonathan Davis from working on a battle rap with him, therefore Durst was chosen in its place.
“All in the Family”‘s lyrics, which featured the two vocalists trading jabs, were written by Davis and Durst. A line that Durst had originally penned as “tootin’ on your bagpipe” was modified to “fagpipes” by Davis, who claimed that “I helped him bag on me better.” Davis and Durst frequently provided feedback for each other’s lyrics.
In order to promote Limp Bizkit’s appearance in the movie Very Bad Things, Durst directed the music video for the band’s single “Faith.” Unhappy with the result, he then made a second video in honor of his fellow tourmates Primus, Deftones, and Mötley Crüe, who also appeared in it.
Mainstream success (1998–2005)
With the releases of Significant Other (1999) and Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water (2000), Limp Bizkit became well-known. Durst was named Senior Vice President of A&R at Interscope in June 1999. Through the label’s connections, Durst was able to find record agreements for Cold, Staind, Puddle of Mudd, and She Wants Revenge. Although Durst passed on signing 30 Seconds to Mars and later got into a little spat with Taproot after they declined his initial offer to bring the band to Interscope in 1999, Durst would also help in luring other bands like 30 Seconds to Mars and Taproot.
In front of almost 200,000 spectators, Limp Bizkit performed at the eagerly anticipated Woodstock ’99 festival in the summer of 1999. Violence from the audience marred the performance, much of it happening during and after their set, including people pulling plywood from the walls while the song “Break Stuff” was playing. Several reported sexual assaults occurred after the show.
During the performance, Durst said, “People are getting hurt. No one should suffer harm. I don’t believe you should relax, though. Alanis Morissette ordered you motherfuckers to do it. Pick someone up if they fall. The bad energy has already left. We now want to release the wonderful energy. In a subsequent interview, Durst said, “I didn’t witness anybody getting wounded. You are blind to that. How do they expect us to perceive something awful happening when we are gazing out into a sea of people, the stage is twenty feet in the air, we are performing, and we are feeling our music?
The San Francisco Examiner quoted Les Claypool as saying, “Woodstock was just Durst being Durst. His mentality is that “no press is bad press,” thus he actively seeks it out. In it, he wallows. He’s still a lovely man, though. “It’s simple to point the finger and blame [us], but all we did was what they hired us to do. In response to Durst’s criticism of Michael Lang, the other co-founder of the original Woodstock festival, Durst remarked, “I would direct the finger back at the folks who hired us.
Limp Bizkit’s tour was supported by Napster, a contentious file-sharing platform, in June 2000. As a vocal supporter of file sharing, Durst. Durst and Christina Aguilera sang a duet of the Limp Bizkit song “Livin’ It Up” during the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards. Filter frontman Richard Patrick commented on the performance by saying, “Fred getting onstage with Christina Aguilera embarrassed us all.” Durst commented in response to the criticism of the performance, “People always just wanna talk about Britney or Christina.
What is the issue? because they produce a genre of music we’re not permitted to enjoy? Or do you believe they are the antithesis of what makes our music great? Why separate? Why are you such a musical fuckin’ racist? What do you mean I can’t socialize with individuals like this? I obviously didn’t care, and it fed a lot of it as well. Someone who refuses to submit and apologize will only encourage further conversation, in my opinion.
Fans rushed the stage in the mosh pit at Sydney’s Big Day Out festival in 2001 during an Australian tour, and teen Jessica Michalik asphyxiated to death. During the same tour, Durst doused a security guard trying to diffuse a similar situation with water in Auckland, New Zealand. Durst has been charged with insulting security personnel who were stepping in during the Big Day Out crush. Durst claimed in court that he had informed the concert’s organizers, Aaron Jackson, Will Pearce, and Amar Tailor, as well as promoter Vivian Lees, of the possible risks of such lax security. Durst was represented in court by his longtime lawyer, Ed McPherson.
The coroner stated that it was obvious that the crowd’s density was hazardous when Limp Bizkit took the stage and that Durst should have responded more responsibly when the issue became obvious. This was after seeing video and listening to witness evidence. Durst claimed that the death of the kid had left him “emotionally scarred.”
Britney Spears hired Durst to write songs for her in 2002, and he later claimed to be dating her. Spears refuted Durst’s assertions. He stated in a 2009 interview, “I just guess at the time it was taboo for a guy like me to be associated with a gal like her.” A sex tape with Durst on it was posted online in February 2005. Durst sued ten websites that hosted the video for $70 million.
According to a May 2003 story, Durst was collaborating on a New Wave side project in addition to the Results May Vary album by Limp Bizkit. The band, called Pacifica, was supposedly still in its “very early stages” and had a sound similar to that of Soft Cell and Duran Duran. The band’s news coverage abruptly halted, and no more albums were ever released.
Limp Bizkit took part in the Summer Sanitarium Tour, which featured Metallica as the headliners, in July 2003. Local radio host Mancow Muller made fun of Durst in the days before the tour’s stop in Chicago and advised fans who were attending the performance to heckle the singer and throw objects. After six songs, Durst broke into an outburst, threw the microphone to the ground, and left the stage while the audience chanted “fuck Fred Durst” and threw trash at the stage. Ultimately, Chicago attorney Michael Young filed a class-action lawsuit against Durst for breach of contract (for not finishing the show).
The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1) was published in May 2005. For the majority of the record, Sammy Siegler took over playing the drums for the band. Durst insisted on having the album issued as an underground record without any publicity or advertising. Over 2,000,000 copies of the album were sold worldwide, and it peaked at number 24 on the Billboard 200. Despite the title of the album, Durst later declared there wouldn’t be a The Unquestionable Truth sequel. The group later published a Greatest Hitz collection.
Durst despised seeing individuals “using my music as fuel to torture other people”; believing that his music was being misconstrued, he would later claim this as the reason for the band taking a break. Durst had experienced bullying as a child.
Durst added that while he developed a persona for his music, the general public also had the wrong impression of him: “I always knew the guy in the red cap was not me. It’s my creation; I’m Dr. Frankenstein. A conscious attempt was made to construct Fred Durst, and finally I had to bring that man out more than I wanted to because being a breakdancer, graffiti artist, tattoo artist, and enjoying rock and hip hop was too much. It developed a will of its own.
I needed to research the gorilla, the object, and the red-cap person. Although it’s hard, I go through with the shift since that’s what I was trained to do when you feel pressure from others.
Start of film career (2006–2009)
Durst started acting in independent movies when Limp Bizkit was on break. Durst co-starred in the 2006 movie Population 436. The Education of Charlie Banks, his feature film debut, was published the following year. The movie, which stars Jesse Eisenberg, Chris Marquette, and Jason Ritter, got a mixed reaction from reviewers; Rotten Tomatoes awarded it a 48% rating based on 31 reviews. According to the site’s user reviews, “Unevenness and earnestness mire this otherwise sweet, surprising coming of age drama.”
The Longshots, a second film by the director and starring Ice Cube and Keke Palmer, was released in 2008. Based on 71 reviews, Rotten Tomatoes gave the movie a score of 41%, describing it as “a largely formulaic affair, rarely deviating from the inspirational sports movie playbook.” Durst made two bartending appearances in the television medical drama House, M.D. that same year.
Limp Bizkit reunion (2009–present)
Limp Bizkit’s original lineup regrouped and started touring in 2009. Durst revealed that the recording of their upcoming album, Gold Cobra, had started. On June 28, 2011, the album was made available, to mixed reviews. On the Billboard 200, it peaked at position 16.
Durst sang a rendition of AMG’s “Bitch Betta Have My Money” for the Insane Clown Posse cover album Smothered, Covered & Chunked in 2012. Limp Bizkit joined Cash Money Records in February 2012, according to Lil Wayne’s radio interview, which Durst verified on his Twitter feed. A few months later, Durst appeared on the Kevin Rudolf song “Champions,” which reached the top 10 on iTunes, along with Lil Wayne, Birdman, and others.
The movie Pawn Shop Chronicles, starring Paul Walker, was initially going to be directed and produced by Durst; however, Wayne Kramer was ultimately picked to take the helm. Durst filmed three advertisements for the website Eharmony in 2014. Durst started shooting The Fanatic, a movie with John Travolta, in February 2018.

Durst was later detained and given a $5000 fine after being accused of unruly behavior.
A boy named Dallas was born on August 30, 2001, to Durst and his former girlfriend, the actress Jennifer Thayer.
Durst was detained on July 13, 1999, after punching a stage security guard in the head. Durst was later penalized in return for less charges after being freed on a $50,000 bail.
Durst entered a no-contest plea in 2007 to seven misdemeanor offenses, including assault, violence, and reckless driving. In accordance with court records, Durst struck two Los Angeles citizens on October 25, 2006. He received a $1,500 fine, a 120-day sentence with probation, and 20 hours of community service.
Durst wed Esther Nazarov in 2009, but the couple separated after three months.In 2012, Kseniya Beryazina, a makeup artist, became Durst’s third wife. They began the divorce process in September 2018 and finished it in 2019. In 2022, Durst wed Arles Durst.
Durst expressed his desire to obtain a Russian passport and live in Crimea for half the year in 2015. Vladimir Putin, he wrote in a letter, is “a great guy with clear moral principles and a nice person.” After that, Durst was given a five-year entry ban by the Security Service of Ukraine “in the interests of ensuring the security” of the nation.
Durst lost the majority of his valuables and his home in the 2018 California wildfires. Several pieces of equipment belonging to his bandmate Wes Borland that were kept in Durst’s house in preparation for an upcoming recording session were also destroyed by the fire.
A well-known sports aficionado, Durst. He is well-known for supporting the Jacksonville Jaguars and Las Vegas Raiders of the National Football League. The Boston Celtics of the NBA have Durst’s support. Most notably, Durst was renowned for his distinctive appearance, which included consistently donning a New York Yankees baseball cap backwards.
Fred Durst Feuds
Following Corey Taylor’s outspoken opposition to Korn drummer David Silveria’s Calvin Klein picture campaign, Taylor had seized copies of the magazine issues and burnt them throughout several Slipknot live concerts, which ultimately led to Durst taking offense to the gestures. It was alleged that Durst would later refer to Slipknot’s supporters as “fat, ugly kids” in retaliatory remarks he made to them in the spring of 1999.Durst has refuted these claims. Corey Taylor of Slipknot responded by saying that the band’s followers “for the most part, enjoy all kinds of music, like Limp Bizkit… maybe” during a performance in Sydney, Australia in February 2000.
Taylor continued by saying that disparaging Slipknot supporters may equally be construed as disparaging Limp Bizkit fans. Durst expressed his wish to ease tension between the two sides during an interview with VH1 in October 2000. He praised Slipknot’s music and said, “Man this band is extremely phat, man; we don’t even know them. Their chant, their entire thing, and everything about it is great. Perhaps because of all the hatred currently circulating, I said, “It’s all the world has even seen lately.” Despite this, Taylor responded, saying “Fred Durst is a great businessman, but he is not an artist,” while praising Durst’s financial endeavors.
While working on the album Gold Cobra in 2010, the two became more amicable. Durst even added a line in the song “90.2.10” that featured a shout-out to Taylor. During a live interview in 2011, Taylor claimed that Durst’s kids were Slipknot fans. Later, Korn and Limp Bizkit were scheduled to perform together in Japan in 2014 as part of Slipknot’s Knotfest tour.
After the passing of former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison in 2021, Limp Bizkit honored him at one of their performances.
Fred Durst Britney Spears
Britney Spears and Durst were rumored to have collaborated on a number of songs for her planned 2003 album In the Zone. At the time, Spears was in the news frequently due to rumors around the breakdown of her relationship with ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake, who she had broken up with in 2002. Later, Durst was linked to Spears as the two were frequently seen together. When Spears was initially accused of having an affair with Durst, Timberlake responded by releasing the song Cry Me a River in November 2002.
Durst said in January 2003 that he and Spears were dating as a result of their cooperation on three future album tracks. After hearing Durst’s allegations, Spears denied the two were dating but acknowledged that Durst “Was a really Sweet guy” and that they continued to be friendly. In response to Spears’ denial of the relationship, Durst abandoned the three songs he had written for her album and instead, on February 18, 2003, posted the song “Just Drop Dead” via Limp Bizkit’s website. Durst’s crude description of their supposed relationship is shown in the song.
During a subsequent interview on Howard Stern, Durst began to detail a variety of sexual experiences between the two. According to Durst in a 2009 interview, “I just guess at the time it was taboo for a guy like me to be associated with a gal like her.” Later, in 2013, Durst made another insulting remark about Spears in the song Ready to Go by Limp Bizkit.
Taproot & System of a Down
An emerging band from Ann Arbor, Michigan was called Taproot. The band emailed Durst their tape in 1998, and he instantly became friends with them. He frequently invited them to press conferences in Los Angeles and occasionally drove them to Limp Bizkit shows across the region. Other record labels were also paying attention to Taproot at this time, most notably Arista Records and Atlantic Records.
Durst was thrilled with the band’s material and had initially planned for Taproot to sign a record deal with Interscope. However, Interscope executives proved to be challenging to work with because they insisted on owning the rights to the three songs the band had recorded as part of their demo deal. Ultimately, the band turned down Interscope’s offer and tried to sign with Atlantic Records using their newly formed friendship with System of a Down. After learning that Taproot had eventually defected to Atlantic, Durst was furious and left a threatening voicemail on frontman Stephen Richards’ mother’s answering machine. Later, it was claimed that as retaliation, Durst had personally removed System of a Down from the 1999 Family Values Tour.
Limp Bizkit played at the WXRK Dysfunctional Family Picnic in June 2000, although they arrived an hour late for their act. It was unclear what time the band was scheduled to perform, according to an Interscope spokeswoman. Durst referred to Creed singer Scott Stapp as “an egomaniac” while the band was performing. Durst later received a signed anger management book from Creed’s agents during an appearance on Total Request Live.
At a performance Durst was hosting at Irving Plaza in December 1998, a dispute between Limp Bizkit and Placebo started. Before Placebo’s performance, Durst instructed the crowd to scream “Placebo sucks!” as a result of an altercation with Placebo vocalist Brian Molko that occurred off-stage. Later, Molko remarked that no one had informed him that Durst would be presenting the program and that Placebo would follow Kid Rock as the opening act. Durst once more urged the crowd to shout “Fuck Placebo” before introducing Staind as a part of K-Rock’s Dysfunctional Family Picnic in Holmdel, New Jersey, in 1999. On Big Day Out 2001, where Placebo were listed below Limp Bizkit, the animosity flared up again. The conflict was purportedly resolved by 2004.
Shaggy 2 Dope
Durst was hosting a gig when a fight between Limp Bizkit and Placebo started. As the hip-hop duo Insane Clown Posse performed the song “Faith” on October 6, 2018, Shaggy 2 Dope made an attempt to dropkick Durst. Shaggy was called a “clout chaser” by DJ Lethal from Limp Bizkit in response on Instagram Live. The pro wrestler 2 Dope, who has years of expertise, claims that he didn’t mean to hurt Durst and that the reason for the kick came from a bet he made with a security guard who let him on stage after Durst said, “I need some people on stage.”
On Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast on February 4, 2022, Shaggy 2 Dope expressed regret for attacking Durst four years earlier. Durst said in his social media response that he had no bad feelings at all.
Trent Reznor & Marilyn Manson
Durst mentioned Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails as an inspiration in a number of interviews. Reznor constantly blasted Durst and Limp Bizkit in interviews after becoming upset by Durst’s remarks. It’s one thing if you realize your place, like, ‘Hey, I’m an idiot who plays horrible music but people buy it – fuck it, I’m having fun,'” Reznor said in a feature for Kerrang!, mocking Durst.
But it’s quite another when you begin to believe you are David Bowie after staying up all night writing the tune “Break Stuff.” Fred Durst most likely misspelled the word “break” the first several times, after all. I don’t know Fred Durst, but he could be a really cool dude. But his “art” is bad in the broadest meaning of the word. Reznor was given a co-writing credit for the Limp Bizkit song “Hot Dog” after Durst repeatedly alluded to Nine Inch Nails. Reznor clarified that there was no problem, saying that “Durst realized ‘Fuck, I’d better ask permission first or I might get sued!'” before his record went to print. I let him do it since I didn’t want to ruin his record.
Limp Bizkit’s supporters were derided by Marilyn Manson in 1999, who called them “illiterate apes that beat your ass in high school for being a ‘fag’ and now sell you tuneless testosterone anthems of misogyny and pretend to be outsiders.”
When Manson was questioned in 2000 about his thoughts on Nine Inch Nails’ most recent music video for the single Starfuckers, Inc., in which the two take aim at a number of artists including Billy Corgan, Michael Stipe, and particularly Durst, Reznor and Manson once again targeted Durst and Limp Bizkit. In a later statement, Manson said: “With this video, we didn’t want to sound like we were complaining about how, in their eyes, Limp Bizkit is doing better than we are. Limp Bizkit stinks, you know it, I know it, and I shouldn’t have to say it, Reznor subsequently shouted.
In response to the accusations hurled at him by Manson and Reznor, Durst said, “I realize that Marilyn Manson is really sad that his career has fallen apart and he’s alienated his fans so if he has to say things like that because he’s very mad at himself, I would forgive him. Trent Reznor is also in the exact same situation. Trent Reznor’s dissatisfaction with how he alienated the world, how long it took him to complete a record, and how he believed in his own immortality is evident. We are simply here carrying out our duties and have nothing negative to say about anyone. I wish them both the best of luck and I’m sad they have to say garbage because they are so envious and angry with themselves.
When Durst and Manson joined James Hetfield and Ozzy Osbourne on the cover of a Rolling Stone edition in June 2003, their friendship was said to have improved.
Wes Borland, a guitarist for Limp Bizkit, still joined Manson’s touring group in 2008. On August 15, 2008, while performing in Seoul, South Korea, Manson introduced Borland onstage and disparaged Limp Bizkit, telling the crowd, “Here’s our new guitarist, he used to play for a really bad band…” Less than nine months into his tenure with Manson’s touring group, Borland would leave.
Borland would subsequently criticize Manson in several interviews in 2021, calling him a “Bad fucking dude” in response to numerous charges of sexual abuse and assault against Manson. Reznor responded by defending Borland’s charges of Manson’s wrongdoing while simultaneously criticizing Manson for the abuse claims in an interview with Ultimate Guitar.
Puddle of Mudd
Puddle of Mudd frequently fielded inquiries on their relationship with Durst as a result of the publicity surrounding their 2000 record deal, which was arranged by him. In an interview with Canada’s Chart magazine in 2004, Wes Scantlin attacked Durst as follows:
He does nothing for us; he doesn’t write our songs, he doesn’t produce our tunes, nothing. He no longer appears in our videos. He does nothing to support this band. I am unaware of his activities and his personality. I just know that he resembles Mr. Hollywood or Mr. Celebrity. For example, “I only hang out with Hollywood celebrities.” In every single interview I’ve ever done, I am questioned about that individual. Additionally, I frequently participate in interviews where I am questioned about a certain person.
People believe that he collaborates on songs with me or whatever. He avoids doing that. I’m just not getting it. Nothing about us is similar. To congratulate us on our performance, he doesn’t even phone us; instead, he has his assistant do it. Yes, that is how pitiful he is.
Wes Scantlin apologized for his earlier criticism of Fred Durst in an interview with Artisan News Service on April 22, 2008:
“Fred helped us a lot by getting our foot in the door. We don’t actually talk to him all that much these days because he’s busy directing, but we do appreciate everything he has ever done for our careers.
