How to get to the root of random defamation talks?
Me and my wife are going through a dispute. She went back to her parents place. Then suddenly there was a wave of defamation talks about: me having relationship with other girls and that being the root of our dispute etc. However that is not true. The talks were so random and from many people including my in-laws, that I couldn't blame any one particularly. We live in a small town where such talks spread quite fast. The situation is really tense for me and my family now. And it also made our personal matters worse.
We were able to record a phone call where one of my in-law claimed that 4-5 people told him about: me having relationship with other girls and that being the root of our dispute etc. He is not claiming it to be true directly, but I feel he was actual trying to spread it indirectly.
Can I do anything legally based on that call recording, to get to the root?
