He grew notorious for showing up late at shows, and his differences with Borland soon led the guitarist to leave the band. In 2005, the band weathered another blow when a sex tape featuring Durst was posted online. Between the band members' personal struggles and Bizkit's sagging record sales, the group decided in 2005 to take a hiatus.
The band reunited in 2009 and two years later released its sixth studio album, Gold Cobra,
its first release in six years. In late March of 2013 Limp Bizkit released its seventh album, Ready to Go, which found the group collaborating with Lil Wayne.
During Bizkit's hiatus, Durst began concentrating his time on film work. His directorial debut came in 2006 with The Education of Charlie Banks, which starred Jesse Eisenberg. The Durst-directed The Longshots came out in 2008.
Durst is the father of two children, Adriana May Durst (born June 3, 1990) and a son, Dallas Durst (born August 30, 2001). Durst's personal life drew plenty of jeers in 2009, when he married Esther Nazarov and then announced via Twitter only three months later that the couple had separated.
