This may be an issue with billing and purchase information being mistakenly locked for both of you. I've had this occur on my own profile. Try contacting Xbox support at www.support.xbox.com/contact-us and explaining the issue in as much detail as possible.
They will have to route you to a specialist but you will be taken care of :)
