After a Page Six story first published on Friday night reported that Yoko Ono had been rushed to the hospital after possibly suffering from a stroke on Feb. 26, longtime Ono spokesperson Elliot Mintz tells Billboard that the artist and widow of Beatles legend John Lennon was hospitalized citing “flu-like symptoms.” It was later determined that Ono was “suffering from dehydration.
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

Adds Mintz: “In all likelihood, she’ll be going home tomorrow.”
Ono’s Sean Lennon tweeted that his mother is “fine” and thanks fans for their support.
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.
