Limp Bizkit are threatening to fire two of the group's original members.

The 'Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle)' band have just signed a new deal with Cash Money Records, but band members DJ Lethal and drummer John Otto say they face being kicked out by singer Fred Durst.

DJ Lethal wrote on twitter: ''Fred has plans for a 'new' LIMP BIZKIT which doesn't include John Otto or I (sic).

''From what I understand, Fred doesn't approve of our lifestyle which includes partying and fun.''

He added to website TMZ: ''We've worked together the last four years to bring Limp Bizkit back to where it is today, and to just be thrown out on the street after the band gets a new deal and a new chance at life isn't cool.''

Fred has yet to comment, but guitarist Wes Borland has defended his stance.

He wrote on twitter: ''Our only intention has been to move ahead with the parts of the band that can function together.

''And none of this has been Fred's decision alone. It's been between [Bassist] Sam [Rivers], Fred, and I and has been an ever-evolving situation. So please get off Fred's back about it, because we are together in this.''

Limp Bizkit went on hiatus between 2004 and 2009 before launching a comeback tour and a new album, 'Gold Cobra' in 2011. The record was not a hit, and led to them being dropped by label Interscope, but they have continue to tour and are preparing a new EP, 'The Unquestionable Truth (Part 2)'.
