Yoko Ono in Hospital With 'Serious Flu,' Not a Stroke

Wednesday, August 03, 2022

Yoko Ono, the 83-year-old artist and widow of John Lennon, has been hospitalized with a “serious flu,” according to her longtime spokesman.

“It’s just an advanced case of the flu,” Elliot Mintz told media, who initially published reports that Ono had suffered a stroke.

He said: “To the best of my knowledge, she had symptoms along the lines of a serious flu, and her doctor thought it was best that she would get a check-up at the hospital. There is no stroke and there are no life threatening circumstances as has been described to me.”
