In today’s edition of creepy men getting their projects potentially funded by multi-billion-dollar companies, Apple is considering putting the sequel to R. Kelly’s rap opera “Trapped in the Closet” on Apple Music, according to a new report from Bloomberg.

The first five chapters of the series premiered on R. Kelly’s seventh album TP.3 Reloaded in 2005, and grew over the next seven years to encompass 33 chapters of the most ridiculous story, with some of the greatest twists and turns you’ve ever seen or heard heard. “Trapped in the Closet” was definitely entertaining, as evidenced by the somehow riveting first chapter:

However, it doesn’t negate the fact that R. Kelly is a sexual predator who has been accused of having sex with girls as young as 14 and married the late R&B star Aaliyah when she was 15.

When you take that into consideration — no matter how entertaining a sequel to “Trapped in the Closet” may be — R. Kelly probably shouldn’t get any sort of assistance from the world’s richest corporation that flaunts its morals so openly that it won’t even allow cursing on its radio station.
