James Blunt has fuelled gossip he's split from his long term girlfriend by refusing to answer questions about the rumoured break-up and insisting he's not ready to settle down.
The British singer began dating Spanish model Sabina Vidal over the summer (10), and sparked reports of an impending proposal last year (10) by talking about his desire to get married and start a family.
But rumours emerged in December (10) suggesting the romance had fizzled out.
Blunt is refusing to confirm or deny the split reports and he's remaining coy about his love life, only confessing he has ruled out marriage.
He tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "Who knows (about the split stories). I'll let the papers keep track of all that while I'm keeping my card close to my chest. I think that's probably the best thing to do."
Blunt adds, "I'm dependent on friendships, but marriage? I've seen a lot of marriages fail, so I'd hope not to get stuck in something like that..."
