LIMP BIZKIT frontman Fred Durst has posted a photo of him wearing a hooded sweatshirt with the words "Not Robert" written on the front. The picture apparently pokes fun at the fact that the venerable news organization the Associated Press recently confused the rap-rocker with Robert Durst, the wealthy real estate heir who is accused of murdering his friend Susan Berman in 2000 and who is the subject of the just-completed HBO documentary series, "The Jinx: The Life And Deaths Of Robert Durst".
On March 17, following the final episode of the series, in which Robert is overheard making a seeming confession to the murder of Berman and perhaps others, he was arrested in New Orleans for Berman's killing as well as weapons charges. The initial AP report read, "A Louisiana State Police trooper says millionaire Robert Durst has been booked on weapons charges in that state — on top of a first-degree murder charge lodged by Los Angeles authorities. Trooper Melissa Matey told the Associated Press that 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."
The AP corrected itself later in the day, issuing a statement which read, "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."
They still got it wrong because Fred Durst is still the lead singer of LIMP BIZKIT, who performed at California's Epicenter festival earlier in the month.
In addition to the murder of Berman, Robert Durst has been long suspected of being behind his wife Kathleen's disappearance in 1982.
Berman, who may have had knowledge of Kathleen's disappearance, was found murdered execution-style on December 24, 2000.
Robert Durst was also tried in 2003 for the murder of Morris Black, a neighbor of his in Galveston, Texas. He was acquitted on grounds of self-defense.
