"Kris told all of her family and friends that no one is to say a word about Kanye's situation," a source close to the 61-year-old momager said.
"She wants nothing more than for everyone to believe that Kanye is okay and that he just needed some time to recuperate from stress."
As RadarOnline.com reported, the 39-year-old rapper – who was released from UCLA Medical Center on December 1 after an 8-day hold – is still struggling. But for now, the source said, Jenner wants to hide the truth.
"Kris is desperately trying to spin this to make it look like he is fine when that is absolutely not the case," the source told RadarOnline.com. "People close to Kim believe that Kanye's issues are much more severe than simple exhaustion."

"Regardless, Kris still instructed her kids to not say a word about it," the insider said, adding, "She knows that they all have big mouths, but it is her job to do damage control in times like this."
