R. Kelly

I've Written 32 NEW Chapters

of 'Trapped In the Closet'

12/21/2011 9:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

R Kelly says he has written 32 new chapters

R. Kelly needs funding -- AND QUICK -- because the singer tells TMZ he's ready to film THIRTY TWO new chapters of his legendary hip-hopera "Trapped in the Closet" ... but he needs financial backing first.

When we last saw "Trapped" ... the year was 2007 and Kelly had released 22 chapters, involving a little person who crapped his pants ... a neighbor with the spatula ... and a pimp with the stuttering problem.

Now, Kelly -- who was leaving an L.A. gym yesterday -- tells us he wants to continue the saga -- "but it costs a lot of money to do ... so we're actually looking for investors."

In the meantime, check out the end of Chapter 7 -- it's the only time we've ever heard anyone sing the word "spatula" ... and it's beautiful.

The TMZ staff's never heard anyone sing "spatula" before? Guess they're not into "Weird Al" Yankovic, then :)

I would be glad to see his next album coming out.

I kind of miss seeing music videos on MTV, VH1, but I can understand. The music is not all of that nowadays.

Trapped in the closet again, really Robert? Oh now I know why he came to Starkville, MS, late and didn't sing a song. We can assume he got paid because tickets were 40 bucks! VIP fee not sure sure of. Thats messed up, didn't sing one song, not even a hummmmmm!

This was cool. I never really saw these, but liked this. Sorta like a R&B Opera. Gonna go back and look at the old ones. RKelly is a prolific, creative artist. Yeah, I guess he peed on a girl. Not sure of her age. But for real for real, how many rock, r&b, movie, and sports stars havent done some freak some, including w underagers. It's a whole freakin world of freaks of all ages.
