Yoko Ono has been hospitalised in New York City for flu-like symptoms, but her representative says the artist-singer is on the mend and should be released this weekend.

Elliott Mintz said on Friday that Ono went to the Mount Sinai West Hospital on the advice of her doctor. He said media reports that she had had a stroke were not true.

Ono, who turned 83 last week, arrived at the hospital and medical staff decided to admit her, Mintz said.

But “It was nothing,” he added. He said Ono likely will be released from the hospital on Saturday.

Ono is the widow of John Lennon of the Beatles.
