This is not that difficult an issue. She can "want" you out, but if she tries to evict you it will fail if the only thing that happened is that you followed the law and paid your rent - with that security deposit. And depending on your lease, all or part of your legal bill will likely be her responsibility if she is paid legal fees in the lease and you win (and your lease did not start before February 2014)

I believe I answered this before, or something similar. The landlady cannot just take your security and you may have a case against her (I sent a link to you as to what the law is on return of a security deposit). Nor can she evict you before the lease is up unless she goes to court. You may be entitled to double security if she inappropriately removed the security deposit funds from the account. You should talk to an attorney in person, rather than ask the same question a number of times.
