Bieber, 19, was under negative publicity when he turned up hours late at his gig here and later got in arguments with papparazi in an another incident.
Tomlinson wrote on Twitter to show his support.
"Although I don't know him personally, I do wish the press would take it easy on @Justin Bieber. I really do empathise with him, I don't see anything out of character in comparison to any other teenagers I know," Tomlinson, who is member of band One Direction, posted.
