Honoree Mary J. Blige and her husband Kendu Isaacs arrived at the Essence Black Women in Music: Honoring the Career & Accomplishments of Mary J. Blige reception in West Hollywood, Calif. yesterday. Many industry pals stepped out to honor the star.

Blige recently made headlines for an alleged altercation with her husband. The hitmaker has been married to the record industry executive since 2003, but the couple was rumored to be having problems following a reported incident at a party at the M2 Ultralounge last month. A representative for Blige is adamant the couple's relationship is as strong as ever.
