Beatles fans feared the worst when Yoko Ono — the 83-year-old widow of John Lennon — was rushed to a hospital last night!

The New York Post‘s “Page Six” initially reported that Yoko had been picked up in an ambulance after a call from her Upper West Side home that said her speech was slurred and she was possibly having a stroke.

But her son Sean Lennon later posted on social media: “Hey, guys: it was only rumors from the press. was NOT a stroke; just dehydration/tired. She is FINE. Thank you everyone for your concern,”

Yoko’s spokesman Elliot Mintz later made an official statement on the earlier reports — which has left fans wondering why Yoko was rushed in an ambulance for “a check-up” at a hospital:

They are not accurate. 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, and she is being checked up for that, and hopefully will be released as early [as] tomorrow. There is no stroke, and there are no life-threatening circumstances as has been described to me. It’s just an advanced case of the flu.
