Yoko Ono Hospitalized With "Flu-Like Symptoms"
The artist's spokesperson says in "all likelihood, she'll be going home tomorrow."
Yoko Ono was hospitalized on Friday night with "flu-like symptoms," her spokesperson stated.
Earlier reports, including from Page Six, said that the artist was possibly suffering from a stroke.
Longtime Ono spokesperson Elliot Mintz confirmed to Billboard that the artist and widow of Beatles legend John Lennon was hospitalized. It was later determined that Ono was "suffering from dehydration."
Added Mintz: "In all likelihood, she'll be going home tomorrow."
In October, Ono and the latest iteration of her Plastic Ono Band headlined the Modern Sky Festival in New York's Central Park. The prolific musician, who turned 83 on Feb. 18, continues to release new music and be active in the industry both through her own projects and work with her son, Sean.
