This is a very common problem. In many instances, wallpaper was installed in a home without the prerequisite wallpaper-primer being applied to the walls. It's an issue of expense on the front end. But it comes back to bite on the back end. Without the wallpaper-primer, the wallpaper was installed directly onto the sheetrock. Once it is stuck, it is there to stay. An entire industry has emerged, providing do-it-yourself tools for wallpaper removal. Very few work. And, in recent years, the wallpaper removal chemicals have been diluted to such an extent that they're practically ineffective. The end result of all of this is paper that won't come off of the walls easily, and damage to your drywall when it does. Your best option is to hire a professional who knows how to remove it safely.
