Landlord - Privacy discrimination?

My current landlord is also one of my roommates (I am renting a room in the townhouse that he owns). There is another tenant who just moved in in Late August, and ever since she moved in, my landlord has been gossiping about me to her. I know for a fact that he is giving her personal information about me regarding where I work, what I do, and various other information and gross speculation (I am Asian, and I overheard them speculating about my ethnicity). Has my landlord truly violated my privacy or is this simply an incompatibility issue? I only ask because he has not acted like any sort of landlord should act, including holding parties on weeknights until 4:30 AM and turning on his TV theatre system so loudly that it shakes my bedroom that is located right above (despite REPEATED, genial inquiries to turn down the volume). I am moving out very soon, but I can't help but feel he has violated my rights as a renter in some way.
