    Well that might be the problem , If you shared it once his number will remain on that Apple ID . You can do a search online to find out how to remove the number.

    How to unlink a phone number:

    To remove a phone number from an Apple ID, sign out of FaceTime and Messages on your iPhone. Sign out in the following locations:

    Settings > Messages > Send & Receive. Tap your Apple ID, then tap Sign Out.
    Settings > FaceTime. Tap your Apple ID, then tap Sign Out.
    This should remove your phone number from other devices using the same Apple ID with FaceTime and Messages.

    If the phone number is still available on other devices after you sign out of FaceTime and iMessage on the iPhone, you may need to sign out of iMessage and FaceTime on all your devices, then sign in to FaceTime and Messages again on devices you want to use.

    Note: If you no longer have access to the iPhone that is using the number you want to remove, reset your Apple ID password.

    i have sorted out this problem, posting here so that if anyone has such problem then can solve it
    Open itunes in menu go to View Account, then there u will found the devices assigned with the phone, just remove which u dont want, save it and then change the password.
    Mine is working perfectly fine now
    Thanks all for your kind supports.
    Please note that changing the password only doesnt work, i have tried it
