A personal account has to be in one persons name or anothers, you can't share a personal account so is it in her name or her ex?

Then sadly the account does not belong to her, it belongs to her ex and she has 'given' him her email address to use.

She would need to ask her ex to add another email address to that account > make it primary and remove your sisters email address so that she can then use it to set up her own account.
