This is a legal issue, so I am giving you an opinion only. If you pay the rent on an apartment, and as long as you are not doing anthing illegal, you do not have to abid by her silly request. If she had given you a lease and it was stated, then she would have recourse. Make sure that if she tries to evicts you, you go to court and state what you have asked here. You should speak with an attorney, just an case this perjudice gets out of hand. You may have punitive damages also. This is a new era and this should not be happening. Your life is strictly your business.
