The 'All Around The World' star has thanked the "big man" for a recent talk in the wake of his UK tour.
Justin Bieber has been seeking advice from Hollywood superstar Will Smith in the wake of his bad press in the UK over the past two weeks, and posted on Twitter to thank the I Am Legend star for his help.
The 'Boyfriend' star is known to be close with former Fresh Prince Of Bel Air star Will, having taken his son Jaden out on tour with him, and sought out his help recently after a series of issues over the past week including a late tour show and an altercation with a paparazzi photographer.
"Will has been helping Justin out a lot, mentoring him and offering him guidance, " Angie Simpson, the mum of teen star Cody Simpson, revealed to the Mail Online. "He's someone who is used to this level of scrutiny and it has helped having him around.
"Justin is an adult and has a very strong, loyal and professional team around him, but it is hard for anyone to come under such pressure," she added.
"Love to big man Will Smith for the great talk yesterday," Justin tweeted on Saturday (9th March). "We know the truth and we must stand tall. Love u man! Thanks!"

The 'As Long As You Love Me' singer's difficulties during the UK leg of his 'Believe' tour also saw him collapse during a performance at the O2 Arena in London, resulting in the Canadian star having to be hospitalised for the night.
Justin Bieber has now taken his 'Believe' tour over to Europe, but was forced to cancel one of two shows in Lisbon, Portugal this week due to "unforeseen circumstances".
