Am I bound to maintain my real and stepmother simultaneously

I am facing a legal dilemma regarding the maintenance of my stepmother. She is claiming that I have to provide for her financial needs, even though she has two biological daughters who are capable of supporting her. She argues that since I am taking care of my biological mother, I have a moral obligation to do the same for her. However, I do not agree with this logic. I do not have any emotional or legal bond with my stepmother, and I do not think it is fair that I have to bear the burden of her expenses. I am very confused and frustrated by this situation.
