R. Kelly revives 'Trapped in the Closet'

It seems R. Kelly is trapped in the closet again.

The R&B singer is releasing the next installment of his dramatic musical series, “Trapped in the Closet,” according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The series, which chronicles the antics of outrageous fictional characters, was first introduced to audiences in 2007 via five music videos. The videos were released to accompany Kelly's 2005 album, “TP.3 Reloaded.”

The series quickly became a cult classic, prompting the singer to release 22 additional chapters.

IFC is expected to helm chapters 23 and so on, which will air in the fall. (The network is expected to begin filming in Chicago this spring.)

Kelly promised he’d fill in some blanks for fans: "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," he said in a statement, via the Chicago Sun-Times.

The singer is expected to release his new album, “Write Me Back,” this summer.His memoir, “Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me,” is due out in June.

    If I was a 15 year old girl, I'd want him to pee on me.

      @dick head- may I call you Dick? I'm a frilly guy. I dress very nice, I'm well groomed, and if I don't say myself, I'm quite a looker. The world is a better place with me flitting about, just saying...
