Step daughter obsessed with her father

I see some of you have the same problem as me. My step daughter is 44 and married to a lovely man. Her mother died many years ago, and in fact, admitted that they clashed and sometimes even hit each other. My step daughter is very close to her dad which is lovely. However, she makes remarks all the time that, "no one will ever come between me and my dad" and friends have told me that she tells them that also, knowing it will get back to me. I don't understand it as I have told her that I have no intentions whatsoever in coming between her and her dad. I think it has started to upset her husband too. She also knows she has been left a lot of inheritance, so money can't be a problem. If I mention to my husband that she is being sarcastic to me he does not want to know. I have tried to speak to both of them and am getting no where and I am worried that she is trying to split us up. I have also been told by friends, that previous relationships that my husband had ended due to her interfering. It's so sad, as I want us all to get on. We have weeks when all is lovely, then she starts with the unpleasant comments. I am wondering if she needs some sort of psychiatric help. Her relationship with her dad is unhealthy and it worries me. I wish my husband would listen to me but like most dads his daughter can do no wrong.
