CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Singer R. Kelly announced he's moving out of the Near West side building that he's been using as a recording studio.

The decision follows a judge's ruling that the controversial singer and producer only use the building between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.

His legal team made the announcement in a statement released Wednesday. The statement compares Kelly to Thomas Edison, Elon Musk, Winston Churchill and other people that were at their most creative outside normal working hours.

Authorities have renewed their investigation of sex abuse allegations against Kelly. The Chicago native denies wrongdoing.

R. Kelly was acquitted of child-porn charges a decade ago, but high-profile lawyer Michael Avenatti says he has turned over a new tape to authorities that shows the singer engaging in sexual conduct with an underage girl.
