British actress Elizabeth Hurley has downplayed her ex Hugh Grant's alleged spat with his former public relations manager, insisting the scandal was "a storm in a teacup".
The Notting Hill star is said to have become involved in a food fight with his former representative, PR guru Matthew Freud, during a glitzy bash in London earlier this month (Mar10).
Freud allegedly overheard the actor make a disparaging comment about him and was said to have thrown chocolate cake at the star.
But Hurley, who dated Grant in the 1990s, claims the two men are still pals - and reveals they're planning to meet again for a meal in the near future.
She tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "Hugh and I have known Matthew for years and we're all friends. We're having dinner together soon."
