Fred Durst did it all for the “Nookie”-and now the entire world must suffer his naked body thanks to a leaked sex tape currently making the Internet rounds.
In the grand tradition of Paris Hilton and Pamela Anderson, the Limp Bizkit frontman’s romp with an anonymous blonde has been on the Web since late Tuesday for anyone’s viewing pleasure…or displeasure, as several disappointed female fans have been dishing on message boards (“poor, poor man” mused one fan on LimpBizkit.com).
Initial reports linked Durst’s caught-on-tape tryst with the recent hacking of Hilton’s Sidekick since many of the hardcore clips of Durst getting down have been imprinted with the graphic “T-Mobile Terrorist”
Although he was apparently “friendly” with Hilton-a 2004 text message to her said, “You are my heart,” per computer transcripts of her Sidekick-Durst came out Friday and asserted his Internet leak had nothing to do with Hilton’s.
“Somebody that was repairing my computer was smart enough to go through anything he could [and found the movie]. What can I say? I’m not proud of it,” the 33-year-old told MTV News late Friday.
Durst also told MTV that his message to Hilton “is just old, years old.”
“If you look on Paris’ thing [her address book/phone numbers now widely available online], I don’t use T-Mobile,” he added.
A T-Mobile spokesman also confirmed that it was highly unlikely the Durst video was somehow downloaded from the rocker’s cell phone because of the Hilton hijacking.
“Fred Durst is not a T-Mobile subscriber,” spokesman Bryan Zidar told CNET.com. “The video in question could not have originated from a Sidekick; the device does not have video capability. The video is also of a resolution not available on a wireless handset.”
Despite the denials from Durst and T-Mobile, a more scurrilous source is still claming a connection between Durst and Hilton. David Hans Schmidt, a former publicist turned celebrity sex-tape broker, says he was approached by the so-called T-Mobile Terrorist months ago about a deal to sell the Durst romp.
Schmidt, who resides in Arizona, says the Durst opus didn’t surface online until after the hackers bailed on negotiations.
“I’ve been talking to Durst’s manager for a month now,” Schmidt told CNET.com Friday. “Now the deal is dead in the water. They had illegal information, and I was trying to turn that into a deal for them.”
Schmidt says he is planning to work with FBI officials who are investigating the Hilton theft.
Not that Schmidt’s exactly a credible source-the 44-year-old ex-spinmeister once spent some quality time in Arizona’s Maricopa County Towers jail on charges of aggravated harassment and child abuse.
A 2001 Phoenix New Times profile Schmidt also implied that he lied during a Early Show show appearance in 2000, where he was billed as a lawyer and did nothing to correct the title.
The former flack has repped everyone from Paula Jones to Tonya Harding, and may be best known for procuring nude pictures of Scott Peterson ‘s mistress, Amber Frey-which he attempted to sell to Hustler magazine in 2003. He eventually posted the pics on his Website that same year and was sued by Frey in October 2003 over his claim he had a signed release allowing him to sell the pictures.
Durst, who’s no stranger to sex scandals is trying to focus on a new LB album. He recently recorded vocals in Prague for the new studio set.
“This album is dark musically already,” he said in a Feb. 6 posting on LimpBizkit.com. “But when mixed with the tone in the air of Prague it becomes somewhat horrifying,”
