Rapper Fat Joe, style maven Misa Hylton, Brooklyn Chop House owner Robert “Don Pooh” Cummins, and others joined MJB for the festivities, while DJ SnS provided the night's soundtrack. Both Joe and Cummins consider Mary to be a sister and were happy to help her celebrate.

All the guests sang "Happy Birthday" as a large cake complete with huge sparklers was presented to the Capricorn.

47 Below is a private members-only venue below the streets of Times Square. In an instagram post, Cummins wrote that Joe described 47 Below as, "It’s the VI, VI, VIP…..not for everyone."
