Drake's mom explains why people think he cries all the time

Drake Wants You to Know That He Doesn't Cry a Lot, Gets His Mom to Defend Him

... Ever heard of the saying, "Don't Drake and drive," or you'll end up at your ex's house?

Clearly, the former Degrassi star is aware of his softie image, and recently videotaped his mom Sandi Graham's take on it.

According to Sandi, Drake actually never cries, but does have a "sensitive soul."

"It's not that you cry at all," she says in a hilarious Christmas video that Drake posted on his Instagram. "I've never seen you cry on stage or even when the two of us are just together."

"They don't think you cry," she adds. "They would imagine that you would be a person that would cry because you are a sensitive soul."

Drake has acknowledged his sensitive image before, telling the AP last September, "I'm emotional, yeah, I guess. Let that be the worst thing in my life, please, not something like drug charges and God knows what else. I don't get myself in trouble, so if the negative feedback that I do get is the worst thing that's going to happen to me, then so be it."

He also called his mother "the most important person" in his life.

"My mother is an incredible woman," he said. "She's brought me to this point single-handedly."
