Famed artist and activist Yoko Ono, the widow of slain Beetle John Lennon, was hospitalized in New York City Friday night after she was stricken with what sources said was a possible stroke, according to reports.

Ono, 83, was taken from the apartment bordering Central Park she once shared with her late husband to Mount Sinai West Hospital, CBS2 reported, citing an unnamed police source. The Daily News, as well as New York Post's Page Six, said she may have had a stroke. Both cited anonymous sources.

HuffPost's calls to the hospital and to Ono's representatives weren't immediately returned. 

Ono and Lennon moved into the famed Dakota, on 72nd Street and Central Park West, in 1973. Lennon was fatally shot outside the building on Dec. 8, 1980. He was pronounced dead at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital, which has since been renamed to Mount Sinai West, where Ono was being treated.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
