I pay for more than 50% of my girlfriends living expenses. why can't i claim her?

We have been together for 3 years total. She and I lived together for the entire year of 2016. She didn't have a job until August 8th which started her training. I pay for more than half the rent after she was being paid and I have definitely paid for more than 50% of her living. Turbo Tax says if she made over $4,050 in 2016 i can't claim her...Is that correct even tho she didn't have a job till end of year and i still covered everything?
