R. Kelly

Moving Out of Recording Studio

After Judge Restricted Access

2/20/2019 9:38 AM PST


R. Kelly is leaving the Chicago recording studio where he produced some of his biggest hits.

The singer’s lawyers, Melvin Sims and Steven Greenberg, tell TMZ … Kelly is moving out because court-ordered restrictions made it impossible for him to keep his creative juices flowing.

As we’ve reported … a judge limited the studio’s working hours after city inspectors found tons of building code violations.

Kelly’s people say he’s struggling to adjust to the sweeping changes — especially cutting off his overnight access — so he’s looking for a new place to record. They insist 24-hour access is the widely accepted industry standard, so his 9 PM curfew has impaired his “musical innovation.”

Kelly produced tons of hits in the studio, including “Ignition,” “Step In The Name Of Love,” and “Trapped In The Closet” — but it’s also the place where he’s allegedly held women against their will. The studio was featured in Lifetime’s docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly.”
