Disgraced former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle allegedly boasted to a franchisee about “amazing” sex he had with a 16-year-old girl, according to texts subpoenaed by the FBI.
The texts emerged as Fogle finds himself in a federal child porn probe, which hasn’t brought any charges but cost him his PR position with the sandwich franchise.
“The latest allegation about Jared Fogle, if true, is appalling. As previously stated, we have suspended our relationship with Jared,” Subway said in a statement Saturday on its Twitter feed.
In April 2008, Fogel asked a female Subway franchisee, who he was apparently having a sexual relationship with, to advertise herself on Craigslist for sex with other men, Business Insider reported Friday night.
“Is this the same website you found that 16 year old you that you f—ed?” the woman replied, according to an affadavit.
“I still can’t believe you only paid $100 for her.”
Fogle wrote back: “It was amazing!!!!”
“What part of her ad made you think she was selling sex?” the woman asked.
Fogle told her: “U will have to read them to see.”
The age of consent in Indiana, where Fogle lives, is 16.
The woman showed the texts to corporate management in 2008, but her higher-ups did nothing and have no record of her complaints, according to Business Insider.
“She also specifically warned them that he should not be interacting with young people,” the woman’s attorney told the site.
Fogle’s attorney and Subway have not commented on the creepy conversation.
The once-plump pitchman, who rose to TV fame 15 years ago by swearing Subway sandwiches helped him slim down, had his Zionsville home raided in early July after the FBI arrested one of his friends for having hundreds of child porn videos.
He was never charged or arrested, but Subway speedily severed all ties with him and wiped all mention of him on its websites and restaurants.
Fogel has a net worth of $15 million thanks to his squandered Subway gig.
