what can I do to stop her

Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
If it is just that she is complaining about this to other people then I'm afraid that does not give rise to a cause of action in law.
This is not defamation. She is not lying. She is just wildly exaggerating and making a huge fuss over a perfectly innocent piece of trivia.
It is not perverting the course of justice because she is not making any allegations to the police.
She isn't repeatedly contacting you or her so there is no harassment or malicious communication.
I'm very sorry but this type of thing is relationship issue arising from her childishness which is something you are entirely correct to feel aggrieved about but does not give you a claim in law.
Can I clarify anything for you?
