Artist and activist Yoko Ono was hospitalized in New York after experiencing “extreme flu-like” symptoms, her publicist said.

Ono, 83, was taken to the hospital Friday evening, according to publicist Elliot Mintz.

“Her doctor thought it would be a good idea for her to get checked,” he said. He denied media reports that she suffered a stroke, and said she will likely be discharged Saturday.

Ono was married to Beatle John Lennon until his death in 1980.

She has won two Grammys — one as an artist and producer, and the other as a video producer.

This month, Ono is exhibiting “Land of Hope,” which comprises 19 pieces of her artwork in Mexico City’s Memory and Tolerance Museum. The interactive exhibit promotes peace.
