Fred Durst has split from his wife after just three months of marriage.

The Limp Bizkit frontman announced he was ending his brief union with Esther Nazarov on his Twitter page.

He wrote: "For those of you inquiring I will confirm that Esther and I have decided to go our separate ways and we both thank you for your support.

"Thank you all so much for your concern and extremely kind words. Sincerely. We remain very positive and wish only the best for each other."

The couple wed in a surprise ceremony in Las Vegas in July.

Fred, 39, announced the marriage on Twitter, writing: "Cheers to the universe from me and my lovely wife Esther Durst! We are now one and complete.

"Life is so much better knowing I have a wonderful wife and family. I love being married and I am the luckiest man alive to be so in love."

He also told fans about his engagement on the social networking site.

Further details of the split have not been announced, although it has been reported the pair were experiencing relationship difficulties for some time.

In August, they spent a month on holiday together while Fred was working on new material, and began rowing.

Fred wrote on Twitter at the time: "Cheers to life. When things fall apart it's good to have a friend to lean on. We cannot go back and start a new beginning, but we can start today and make a new ending."
