Yoko Ono was hospitalized Friday night for "extreme flu-like" symptoms.

The artist and widow of musician John Lennon was reportedly rushed to the hospital from her New York apartment. Police originally told WCBS she might have had a stroke.

But Ono's son denied the claim on Twitter, saying, "Only stroke @yokoono had was a Stroke of Genius!" He also tweeted that she was just dehydrated and tired.

Ono's publicist told CNN that the 83-year-old would probably be discharged from the hospital Saturday.
