Justin Bieber has praised his father Jeremy for being "the greatest dad in the world" and told fans he's still just a small town boy despite his fame and success.

The teenager is currently back home in Canada with his dad Jeremy and siblings, following a fortnight which saw him charged in separate incidents in Miami and Toronto.

Justin tweeted a selfie on 30 January.

Showing his thanks to his father for supporting him, Justin uploaded a picture of Jeremy alongside the caption: "I have the greatest dad in the world. He's taught me how to love, learn and stay true to myself. I will forever be grateful because he was my superhero #batman."

Jeremy is believed to have been in Miami when Justin was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, resisting arrest without violence and driving with an expired license.

Justin shared a shot of his dad Jeremy on 30 January.

An officer had stopped Justin in his yellow Lamborghini at around 4am on 23 January after suspecting him of drag racing on a residential street.

Canadian Justin appeared before a judge later that day and was released on $2,500 bail. An arraignment date has been set for Valentine's Day although he is not expected in court.

Then, this week, Justin handed himself in at a Toronto police station where he was charged for allegedly assaulting a limo driver in the city in December 2013. His lawyer has said he is innocent. A court date has been set in that case for 10 March.

Police also searched Justin's home in Calabasas, California earlier this month in relation an alleged egg-throwing incident.

Justin's personal life has been making headlines more than his professional one lately.

However, despite his troubles, the star has been receiving support from his devoted Beliebers and the mayor of his hometown, Stratford, Ontario, Dan Mathieson.

Justin, 19, tweeted a link to a Beacon Herald article which quoted the mayor as saying: "As far as I'm concerned, he is a 19-year-old person who has made some errors. I don't condone them, but I also understand that we all have made errors in our life. I hope for his sake that he can get a reset, and get back to music and doing what he loves."

Biebs added: "Never forget where you come from or those who supported you before anyone else. still the small town kid. thanks."
