Born at the Edge -- Schilling 2005 (1013): 3 -- sciencenow: "Naykshin and Sunyaev think that the stars formed in the dense disk of gas and dust that spins around the black hole. If this accretion disk is massive enough, contracting gas clouds within it can withstand the black hole's disruptive forces and spawn new stars. 'It's remarkable that a black hole can help create new stars, not just destroy them,' says Nayakshin."

For anyone interested, here's the paper.
