"NTA They want you to lie. You are not obligated to do that just because it's working for them. What if something did happen at that pool party? Or Eve mentioned it somewhere? You'd be called a liar and going against her parent's wishes. I wouldn't lie either just because they don't want to set boundaries. I would stop answering her calls though. And if she shows up, refer her to her ex-husband. Spinach for breakfast? Please discuss this with ex, pool party? Please discuss this with ex, bed time? Please discuss this with your ex."
