R&B group 112 has left Bad Boy Records and signed to Island Def Jam, sources tell Billboard Bulletin. In an attempt to block the group's departure, Bad Boy chief Sean "P. Diddy" Combs filed a temporary restraining order with Manhattan Supreme Court late last week, according to sources.

112 released three albums on Bad Boy. Last year's "Part 3" debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and spurred the single "Peaches and Cream," which reached No. 4 on The Billboard Hot 100.

Representatives for Bad Boy distributor Arista declined to comment. "The band approached us about joining the Island Def Jam family, and we expect that this matter will be resolved quickly," says an Island Def Jam spokesperson.
