"Let them eat cake," Marie Antoinette reputedly said to the poor French masses during a time of famine. But she didn't know it also applied to English soirées for the rich and famous. A society party came unhinged Wednesday night in London when public relations guru Matthew Freud smeared chocolate cake all over actor Hugh Grant's white shirt, reports the Daily Mail.

The kerfuffle occurred during socialite Heather Kerzner's 41st birthday party at Annabel's nightclub in London's fashionable Mayfair area. The disagreement started after a female attendee asked Grant if he would like to meet Freud. Grant said that he had no wish to see him and allegedly used a disparaging term to describe Freud.
