Same name, big difference. Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst went out of his way on Thursday, March 26, to distance himself from another Durst, murder suspect and The Jinx subject Robert Durst.
As the two share an uncommon last name, they have been confused for one another in recent weeks while Robert, 71, has found himself back in court for cold cases as the HBO show about his life took off. Even the Associated Press had a mix-up with the two, printing a correction earlier this month reading, "In the second item of the California 10th NewsMinute sent March 16 to users of the state broadcast wire, The Associated Press 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."
As Robert is questioned for multiple gruesome murders, Fred, 44, is making no mistake of distinguishing himself from the dubious character. Famous for his raunchy Limp Bizkit lyrics, Fred wanted nothing to do with Robert and wore a statement-making outfit just to prove it.
The musician took to Instagram on Thursday to share a photo of himself in a gray hooded sweatshirt that reads "NOT ROBERT" on the chest and "Limp Bizkit" on the sleeves. Sporting a full beard and the hood atop his head, Fred captioned the shot, "I am NOT ROBERT."
The "Nookie" performer seemingly has no relation to the controversial real estate heir. Fred has yet to confirm whether he was one of the millions of viewers who tuned into HBO to watch The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst, as Robert looked back on the cold cases to which he is linked.
