According to the Independent, 41-year-old Booba was credited for helping the launch of the 38-year-old Kaaris to stardom, and the couple even collaborated on a 2012 track “Kalash.” The two men had a falling out in 2013, when Booba claimed Kaaris had not sided with him during a fight with another French rapper, Rohff.

Reps for Orly confirmed that a terminal of the airport has been temporarily closed in the aftermath of the incident, and that a few flights were delayed up to 30 minutes after the meeting. The waiting area was also closed briefly.
