Former Starsky & Hutch star Paul Michael Glaser has ruled out ever finding love again as he is happy with single life.

The actor's first wife Elizabeth contracted Hiv through a blood transfusion while giving birth to their daughter, Ariel, who was infected with the virus through breast-feeding, and they both succumbed to AIDS-related illnesses in the years afterwards.

Glaser went on to marry Tracy Barone, the mother of his teenage daughter Zoe, but they divorced in 2007, and he is adamant he is better off alone.

The 70 year old tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "I was never ­comfortable with ­celebrity. I have never been really successful in a relationship even with ­Elizabeth. You hope to grow into a relationship, but then the journey with Hiv made things different. I am far better at being alone now."
