The fight, captured on video by fellow travelers, follows several months of words exchanged between the two. According to a BBC report, the incident occurred Wednesday and ultimately resulted in 11 arrests, including both artists. Police indicated several flights were pushed back due to the temporary closure of a portion of the airport. "A small number of flights were delayed by 15 to 30 minutes at the time of the fight and the hall was temporarily closed," an airport rep later confirmed.
The battle royal is believed to have kicked off in a boarding area before moving to a nearby duty-free shop. Neither artist has publicly commented on the incident. At the time of this writing, Booba's most recent tweet was dated July 22. Kaaris, meanwhile, tweeted several times Tuesday afternoon.
As noted by Vanity Fair, the artists' feud is "legendary" in the French scene. Way back in 2012, the two collaborated on the track "Kalash."
Last year, Booba released his now-platinum Nero Nemesis follow-up Trône. Kaaris' 2017 album Dozo, meanwhile, peaked at No. 3 on the French albums chart.
