French singer and actress Vanessa Paradis on Tuesday joked about, but did not deny, rumours that her relationship with US actor Johnny Depp was on the rocks.

"As soon as I eat three peas, I'm pregnant... As soon as I visit a town, I'm buying a house... I separate in the winter, in the summer I get married," Paradis told Europe 1 radio.

"I've been getting married every year for 15 years! If on top of everything else I have to respond to every rumour..." said the star of Jean-Claude Vallée's new film "Cafe de Flore".

The pair have been together for 14 years, and have two children, aged nine and 12. They divide their time between France and the US, where the media have been speculating in recent weeks that their relationship was over.

39-year-old Paradis shot to fame when just 14-years-old with her hit "Joe le taxi." The song was number one in France for 11 weeks and reached number three in the UK charts the following years.

Since then Paradis has also branched out as an actress and model. She won a prestigious César award, the French equivalent of the Oscars, for her role in the 1989 film "Noce Blanche" ("White Wedding").
