Can the landlord share my new address/forwarding address with the abuser?

No. Your landlord can only share your forwarding address with others if it is reasonably necessary for the landlord to accomplish his/her regular and ordinary business. Your landlord cannot intentionally share your forwarding address (or the written statement you submitted) with the abuser.1
