Yoko Ono was taken to the hospital Friday night with "flu symptoms," according to a statement from her rep.
The 83-year-old artist and musician was reportedly taken from the Dakota, where she has lived since the ‘70s, to a nearby hospital, though spokesman Elliot Mintz denied reports that Ono had suffered a stroke."Earlier this evening, Yoko was experiencing 'flu symptoms' and called her doctor, who suggested she go to a local hospital and get a check-up," Mintz told ET in a statement. "She did, and it was determined she was dehydrated and had the flu. She is doing fine and will probably be home tomorrow."
Ono is a mother of two. She has a daughter, Kyoko Cox, from her marriage to producer Anthony Cox, and a son, Sean Ono Lennon, from her marriage to the Beatles star.
Sean Ono Lennon later tweeted an update on his mother's condition, writing, "Hey guys it was only rumors from press: was NOT a stroke, just dehydration/tired. She is FINE. Thank you everyone for your concern."
Earlier this week, the musician and multimedia artist revealed “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” to Us Weekly
, in which she divulged that she hasn’t had alcohol since the ‘50s and was never “into” drugs. In fact, Ono said she never even smoked until Lennon gave her a cigarette at age 34.
“People tell me I’m 83,” she wrote. “But it’s hard to believe that, because I feel 43.”
