Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst has settled a $5 million lawsuit brought by a lighting technican who alleged that he threw a microphone at her, according to the Associated Press. The technician, Connie Paulson, claimed that during a November 2000 stop of the Anger Management Tour, Durst hurled the microphone in a ”fit of rage,” breaking her nose and front tooth and giving her two black eyes.
Durst’s lawyer told Reuters that his client didn’t mean to hit Paulson with the microphone when he threw it off stage at the end of the show. ”It was the result of an unfortunate accident,” McPherson said. ”He felt terrible and visited her in the hospital. He never denied that he threw it.” Neither side disclosed the terms of the settlement.
