Although your agreement with your roommate that each pay half, each of you ultimately is responsible for paying the full amount of the rent. The landlord does not have to let you stay in 1/2 of the rental unit. Sorry.

It depend on what the lease says, but likely it merely says the rent is $XX and who the tenants are which means if anything less than $X is paid, all the tenants can be evicted.
