R. Kelly — I’ve Written 32 NEW Chapters of ‘Trapped In the Closet’


R. Kelly needs funding — AND QUICK — because the singer tells 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.
