Barbra Streisand might want to talk to her son about this!

Her only child, Jason Gould, was being asked to write a tell-all book about his superstar mother, The National ENQUIRER previously reported. But apparently, the book has been shelved for now!

Streisand, 72, and her son – who is openly gay and was diagnosed with HIV in 2000 – were rumored to be estranged, so Gould allegedly already had begun to pen the explosive book. But he exclusively revealed to The ENQUIRER that this isn’t true!

“I’m not writing a book,” Gould, 47, said to an ENQUIRER reporter in Los Angeles.

With all of the confusion, a source said that Streisand doesn’t know what to expect from her son!

“Barbra’s off the hook, but she’s now caught up in a mystery!” the source revealed. “There’s no indication of what apparently convinced Jason not to go ahead with the project.”

A source told The ENQUIRER that Gould, who allegedly had a front-row seat to his mom’s diva antics and A-list romances, had a strained relationship with his mother because of her controlling ways. The book was supposed to be his answer those overly hands-on years.

“If he’d written the book, it could have blown the lid off Barbra’s darkest secrets – and been the ultimate revenge on his domineering mother,” the source added.

The ENQUIRER reported in 2012 that a publishing industry source said the potential exposé on the Funny Girl star “could easily reap a $20 million advance.”

Maybe the singer-director had a change of heart about his Oscar-winning mother, who was previously married to famed actor Elliott Gould before settling down with James Brolin.

“You could say that Jason not writing the book was a late Mother’s Day gift for Barbra,” the source said. “She owes him big time.”
