quesWoman accuses me of her divorce

I have had relations with a married woman in the past, which had ended. I am now married myself. I believe (although I do not know this for a fact) that this person is now filing for divorce as well. She is after me to ‘hold me accountable’. All three of us, this lady, my wife and I work in the same firm.

Please advise what issues she can create legally?
