London: Singer Justin Bieber has thanked One Direction members for their support. Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik defended the 19-year-old singer after his controversial visit to London last week.

Bieber angered fans when he appeared on the stage two hours late during a concert, and later got into an argument with a photographer. Bieber expressed his gratitude to the band stars for having his back, reports a website. "Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson thanks fellas. All good over here. Much appreciated," Bieber tweeted.

Tomlinson, 21, had sided with Bieber on Twitter and posted: "Although I don't know him personally, I do wish the press would take it easy on Justin Bieber. I really do empathize with him, I don't see anything out of character in comparison to any other teenagers I know."

The tweet prompted bandmate Malik, 20, to add: "Louis Tomlinson what a dude man. Got your back bro Justin Bieber".
