R. Kelly Writing ‘Trapped in the Closet’ Prequel Book

November 30, 2012 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

R. Kelly has revealed that he is at work on a prequel book to his hip-hop opera “Trapped in the Closet.” Kelly told Pitchfork that the book will feature into the current chapters of the ongoing project, noting, “The ‘Trapped in the Closet’ book you see as an infomercial in the new chapters is a book that’s on its way, that I’m writing.”

He added, “I know where Chuck was before he met Rufus. I know what was happening before they actually met. I know what happened with Bridget and the midget and everybody else’s situation. So I feel like the fans have supported ‘Trapped in the Closet,’ so I feel like it’s time to introduce them to these people before what they saw…It’s the prequel meeting the sequel. You’ll get to find out a lot of things you don’t know, or that you can’t know, unless you read the book or unless I tell you – so I decided to do a book on it.”
