Maybe R. Kelly thinks “Trapped in the Closet” will be the ticket to getting his mansion out of foreclosure, but if he doesn’t find any investors, it will be a no-go for the hip hopera and his home.
TMZ caught up with the pied piper and he says he’s written an additional 32 chapters that he wants to film and release but “it costs a lot of money to do…so we’re looking for investors.”
I can’t lie, “Trapped in the Closet” was hilarious when it first came out in 2005. After the first 12 chapters, R. Kelly released another 10 in August 2007, exclusively on DVD. I’m not sure he can revive the series seven years after its original run—even five is asking a lot. But when you’re strapped for cash, you get creative. Check out the clip below to see where it all began.
What do you think of R. Kelly bringing back “Trapped in the Closet?” Are you over it or looking forward to it?
