Jason Gould Was Diagnosed With Aids?
“He's HIV positive,” read one anonymous message. “I remember he had an interview in The Advocate - didn't he speak about being HIV positive in that?”, “He never had full-blown AIDS”, and so on.
Furthermore, his diagnosis was as well entangled with political credos in the same discussion with a commentary clarifying,
“He isn't positive. This was a lie spread by the Republican party to try and hurt Streisand during the Clinton years. You will remember what a huge supporter she was of them and the Democratic Party. Martha Steward was also a victim - her arrest and conviction was engineered by the Repugs to get her.”
Also, some made a snarky remark, trying to imply,
“No, he doesn't still have AIDS. He decided to exchange it for a food allergy. They're all the rage these days.”
Despite the public's opinion of the actor, his mother remained at his side, loving and caring for him. There were even suspicions that Gould wrote a book because he was apart from his family. However, he later revealed that this was not the case!
In any case, the openly gay actor seems unconcerned about the rumors or any negative press he receives, and he has his own notion of happily ever after in his head.

What more could a parent ask for in their child? I have been truly blessed. Most parents feel that their child is particularly special, and I am no different. I have a wonderful son. My only wish for my son, Jason, is that he continues to experience a rich life of love, happiness, joy, and fulfillment, both creatively and personally.”

As his father, now 82, and mother, now 79, age, the actor's chances of giving his parents grandchildren may be threatened.
