    “Eden wants a rest from music and performing,” a source, who asked to remain anonymous, said. “She stopped performing. She just quit, she refused offers worth a lot of money,” the source said.
    Aroma Music, the label under which Alene is signed, said that they and Alene took a joint decision not to extend her contract. "She was released from the label. We wish her good luck and success in the future,” the label said.
