And he tweeted a picture of the pair along with another friend saying affectionately: 'We're the 3 best friends that anyone could have.'

The singer has known Ryan and his family since he was a child.
In fact, his British-born parents helped raise him from age five, as his mother was unable to cope, they told the Mail On Sunday in November.
Justin showed his support for his friend by buying him a white Mustang convertible for Christmas.
And Ryan can be seen on Justin's 2009 video for One Time in which he plays a video game with him.
