The details were provided by the woman's ex-husband, claiming that the sexual relationship happened between his now ex-wife and Greitens in March of 2015. 

According to the ex-husband, the recording was made just days after Greitens' and the woman's first encounter and that Greitens took a photograph of the woman to use as "blackmail."

The name of the woman has not been released and she has not made an on-the-record comment about the story.

Not the best start to our weekend as cloudy skies and a few rain showers return to the forecast for Saturday. Do expect only a few showers today, certainly will not be a washout. High temps today will get into the upper 50s. By tonight, showers are again possible with lows in the mid 40s.
