    To give you a more meaningful answer, it would help to know...
    1. Are you doing it, or is she doing it?

    2. Why is it happening?
      (break up, divorce, dispute over money?)

    3. Is everyone involved an adult?

    4. Are you mainly concerned about the content of the messages,
      or about your number becoming known to people you may not have chosen
      to share it with?
    Note that there's nothing especially private about your mobile number.
    There are however offences which a person can commit using a phone system
    (the law call it a "carriage service") to harrass (which is more than to not merely embarrass) others.

She want to show i was the one of the person of my company, which someone was talking about my company (other store) stuff, i am not the once who they talking about, but she show the text messages and just said i am one of them (becoz my company is a big company and i was not working in the same store when the story being).
