Yoko Ono was unconscious when she was rushed to the hospital on Friday evening. First reports speculated the widow of the late John Lennon may have had a stroke, but that was later determined not to be true.

Taken from her home at the Dakota and rushed to Mount Sinai West Hospital, Yoko Ono, 83, was suffering from flu-like symptoms.

Ono has lived at the Dakota since 1973 when she and John Lennon purchased their apartment there. John Lennon was shot and killed in front of the building in 1980. The hospital where Yoko Ono was taken on Friday evening is where Lennon was pronounced dead.

In an interview with Us Weekly earlier this week, Yoko Ono says she still misses the late Beatles legend.

"Maybe people already know this, but I miss John every day," she said.

Yoko Ono also insists in the interview that she had nothing to do with the breakup of The Beatles.

"I had nothing to do with breaking up the Beatles. And I think Paul [McCartney] is a pretty cool dude," she said.

Yoko Ono's publicist, Elliott Mintz, says she will likely be released from the hospital sometime on Sunday.
