Support is the only way to remove the GT email association  - Since you have access to the Email you can get the password to the account - Then change the password and you will then have ownership of the account.

And to anyone who was Stupid enough to do this should have know better in the first place.

On top of what Juan said, once you get the password for the account, you can simply just log into the account at http://account.live.com and change the WLID (thats your email) to something else.

Not sure I like the ideas being suggested here. I can see the thinking behind them is well intentioned but I don't think locking someone out of their account is the right way to go about this.

So to be clear, this other user didn't gain access to your account, they just used your email address for their own GT? Does this person know you personally to be able to do that? Do they have access to this email account (read, send, etc)?
