Known for being married to Beatle John Lennon, Yoko Ono has been hospitalized in New York at Mount Sinai . Her publicist is stating she had “extreme flu-like” symptoms. The rumors are she suffered a stroke. Her son, Sean Ono Lennon, also denied the reports on twitter, “Hey guys it was only rumors from press: was NOT a stroke, just dehydration/tired. She is FINE. Thank you everyone for your concern @yokoono.”
Ono, 83, was married to Beatle John Lennon until his death in 1980. She was taken to the hospital Friday night, according to publicist Elliot Mintz.
Ono has won two Grammys — one as an artist and producer, and the other as a video producer.
This month, she is exhibiting “Land of Hope,” which comprises 19 pieces of her artwork in Mexico City’s Memory and Tolerance Museum. The interactive exhibit promotes peace.
