I have never missed rent and there were no issues until I told her I didn’t want her brother who is twice my age living with me.

If your landlord is seeking to evict you from your rental because you refused to let her brother move in with you, I suggest that you consult with a landlord tenant attorney about the situation. The reason being is that the threat of an eviction as to you seems to be in retaliation by the landlord and very well under your state's statutes concerning landlord tenant relations could be illegal.

If your lease is a term lease with time remaining on it as opposed to a month-to-month lease, your landlord seemingly cannot evict you under state law or under the presumed terms of your written lease with him or her.
