Q: What options do i have if a friend locks me out of an Instagram account

I am 20 yrs old and began business with a friend (no corp, llc or agreement). I developed a following and good feed-back rating through Instagram (the sales and feedback are 95% mine all good). I rented space at trade shows, invested in a professional to create a online website purchased and gave out business cards with the Instagram address all at my expense and alone. I have now been shut out of the Instagram account and my friend is not using it to do business and wants $500.00 to release it to me. I have proof that I was on the Instagram account (via screen shots) doing business and he shut me out
