R Kelly claims to have written 32 more Chapters of ‘Trapped in the Closet’ Series
After plotting out almost two hours of new melodrama, the singer said just one thing is standing between his daft saga and the silver screen: money.
“It costs a lot of money to do it,” Kelly explained to TMZ, “so we’re actually looking for investors.” It has been years since Kelly debuted his gonzo serial, telling a story of guns, priests, infidelity and little people over catchy narrative songs.
