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."
