Sean Lennon confirms Yoko Ono is ‘fine’ following hospitalisation

Rumours claimed the musician had suffered a stroke

Sean Lennon has confirmed his mother Yoko Ono is “fine” following being hospitalised yesterday (February 26).

The musician was admitted to a New York hospital on the advice of her doctor after suffering with “flu-like symptoms”.

It was reported that the 83-year-old Ono had suffered a stroke, but her publicist denied this and, as Spin reports, Lennon posted on Twitter to address the rumours.

“Hey guys it was only rumours from press: was NOT a stroke, just dehydration/tired. She is FINE. Thank you everyone for you concern,” he wrote.

Ono received the NME Inspiration Award at the NME Awards 2016 with Austin, Texas on the eve of her 83rd birthday, and told the Guardian that she never wants to retire from music.

She said: “I won’t stop. No, I never think that. Artists are obsessive, they want to keep doing it.”
