R. Kelly has 32 new 'Trapped in the Closet' chapters, but needs funding

trapped-22.jpgFans of R. Kelly's epic hip-hop opera "Trapped in the Closet" rejoice. The singer tells TMZ he's already written a staggering 32 new chapters of the saga, but is unable to share them with the world unless and until he gets financial backing.

The last chapter of "Trapped" was released in 2007. The series of songs tell the story of a one night stand that sets of a sequence of events that somehow encompass a stuttering pimp, a midget who makes in his pants and lines like "I will kill both of y'all knucklehead a**es."

Kelly tells TMZ he's ready to go, "but it costs a lot of money to do ... so we're actually looking for investors."

While you're getting your financial house in order to determine what size chunk of change you can donate to Kelly's cause, watch where we left off at chapter 22:
