Melanie Marquez open to son Abraham Lawyer joining showbiz

MANILA, Philippines, December 9 ------ Miss International 1979 Melanie Marquez has expressed her support for her youngest son Abraham Lawyer should he decide to enter the entertainment business. 


Abraham, who goes by Abe, gained a lot of attention online after videos of him supporting his half-sister Michelle Dee at Miss Universe 2023 in El Salvador went viral. The 20-year-old is Melanie's youngest son with estranged American and ranch owner Randy "Adam" Lawyer. Michelle is Melanie's daughter with businessman, former director Frederick "Derek" Dee.   


In an interview with GMA's Lhar Santiago during the inaugural Pageant Excellence Awards where she received a Pageantry Icon Award, Melanie said she would back Abe entering showbiz. "Susubukan niya siguro 'yun. Hindi ko kasi sinasabihan ang mga anak ko kung ano gagawin sa buhay," Melanie said. "Basta sabi ko sa kanila, the secret of success is you have to be dedicated and happy of what you're doing para hindi ka madaling mapagod."
