Can't add much more to it. NEVER EVER give anyone access to your wallet EVER. Unless it's already gone to hell and you're attempting to pay/beg someone to help you recover it. In that scenario never put money into that wallet again. Once you regain access, move anything into it to a new wallet. Remember, the owner of the wallet is the person who has the ability to create a transaction and move amounts away from it. – cleanmarker – 2018-12-21T17:10:56.493

Yes, it's a scam, and a well known one. You will lose all money that you deposit to that wallet, even if only you have the password and 2FA for the wallet. Your "friend" already copied the recovery seed and can take the money from the wallet even without a password or 2FA. Simply stop corresponding with that person.
