Back in December, R. Kelly announced plans to add thirty two more chapters to his popular Trapped in the Closet series and this week the Pied Piper of R&B confirms that he will release a new set videos–22 exist thus far–later this year on IFC. “It cost a lot of money to do it, so I’m looking for investors,” Kelly told TMZ four months ago and it seems that he’s struck the right deal.
There has been no date set for the video series as yet, but now’s a better time than ever to revisit the previous clips, which rolled out from 2005 to 2007. The soap opera series began with a one night stand and wove into an extended tale of sex and lies, starring Kelly’s alter ego Sylvester.
“When I first began experiencing the unknown journey of writing Trapped in the Closet I knew after the first chapter that I had tapped into something that was not of this earth,” R. Kelly said in a statement. “Being the nosy person that I am, I more than anyone wanted to know what the second chapter would be. And now here we are at chapter 23, trapped in the million dollar question – what the hell is the package? Well, ladies and gentlemen, not only am I ready to reveal what the package is, but I have many more chapters to share.”
