Outraged that his computer was allegedly hacked when it was sent in for repairs, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is suing Web sites that have posted raunchy video clips of him, according to court papers obtained by the Smoking Gun Web site.

The pudgy rap-rocker, 33, says the clips were never intended for public consumption and that his privacy has been invaded. His lawsuit, which targets Web sites such as Gawker Media, seeks $80 million in damages.

Several of the sites that showed Durst romping with a girlfriend in 2003 have subsequently yanked the images.

As described in the legal papers, "One or more of the defendants have already broadcast certain images from a very private, intimate bedroom video between two former lovers, Plaintiff and his former girlfriend, while threatening to broadcast or disseminate the entire video."

According to reports, the hackers claim to be the very same who invaded Paris Hilton's T-Mobile Sidekick late last month, posting the Simple Life star's private phone list of celebrity friends worldwide – including Durst, who has since changed his number.

The rocker's lawyer claims in accompanying documents that both Durst's and Hilton's cases are being investigated by the Secret Service.
