This was some kind of therapy session. Ah recorded it on her phone and Johnny knew. So both parties consented to recording. Some of the transcript was released in his early filings. She mentions sending him the recordings of the sessions. I assume the full recording may have been received through discovery. But I’m inclined to think as part of therapy they each had a copy.
With no Protective order it is fair game as evidence and public release.

Could it have been submitted during the divorce?
Or for the Sun?
Or any of the other lawsuits like TMG or Bloom?
If (as she claims) AH gave a copy of all these “therapy tapes” to JD, then they were, at some point and for who knows how long, in the personal, and then legal, possession of the principals of both parties, not to mention TMG. Who is to say how many copies of the most damning and/or salacious are in whose possession now?
Were these tapes part of the information that was “lost” (i.e. hidden) for years? And that now are apparently part of the huge treasure trove of “found” evidence that could (should) have exposed the TRO-seeking AH before she ever set foot in a courthouse on May 27th, 2016?
A UK tabloid
gets this “exclusive” and it just so happens that The Sun suit has yet to be resolved. The latter being a suit that Kaplan has been trying to worm her crooked fingers into for months now. Why not sink both defamation suits at the same time? A risk, for sure, but not nearly as much as standing silently on the side lines while the last few minutes of the demurrer decision play out. If the demurrer is granted, it’s the ultimate win for the Defense - the case is dismissed in the US; and the UK suit will have suffered a lethal blow - icing on AH’s cake.
I don’t think the audio tape could have only come from Johnny’s team, nor do I believe Johnny’s team had enough to gain at this stage (trial is still six months away and AH has produced no admissible evidence to date) to make leaking that tape a worthwhile risk. They could always appeal the demurrer decision with the tapes as “new” evidence.
