From weight-loss icon and sandwich king to blatant creep and pedophile – that’s the unfolding story of Subway spokesperv, Jared Fogle these days, and apparently now it’s more than allegations. The FBI claims to have proof in the form of text messages.
Business Insider somehow copped an affidavit with the revealing text messages inside. By the looks of it, the off-putting texts were between Fogle and a former lover and then Subway franchisee. Included in some of the texts is Fogle encouraging the woman to sell herself on Craigslist. He also told her he’d used Craigslist, for example, to purchase sex with a 16-year-old girl.
That’s when Fogle’s ex-lover began to feel the former Subway spokespredator might be venturing into darker territories she did not wish to follow him into. Not only that, she claims she actually provided Subway management proof of the texts after Fondle Fogle began to just downright creep her the f*ck out, and with good cause.
Wait until you read some of the texts, below!
Apparently, though, at the time, Subway took no action and even claims there is nothing on file documenting such an exchange of information. However, recently the FBI subpoenaed an affidavit including the text messages (presumably the same affidavit obtained by Business Insider) directly from the ex-lover’s lawyer’s office.
Business Insider reports:
In the messages, Fogle repeatedly asks the woman – a Subway franchisee at the time – to advertise herself on Craigslist for sex with other men.
He asks her if he can watch the sexual acts and tells her she can make about $500 per act.
It gets worse, though, for poor Subway, thanks to Fogle. Evidence also exists of the sub-pumper pressuring that same woman into introducing her young, minor cousin into the mix, even though the legal age of consent in Fogle’s neck of the woods is only 16 years old – which means she would have been 15 years old, at most, when he started dreaming of sprinkling his parmesan all over her sandwich.
When can we find a time for me to talk to your cousin?
The next day he texts again:
Any more news with your cousin? Tell me what u think about when u think of the three of us all together???
The month before, Fogle had texted the woman:
How young would you like?… Would you want to have an adventure like that?
And a month after pressuring the woman to throw her underage cousin into his seemingly ravenous clutches, he again began pressuring her to sell herself on Craigslist. This time, however, the woman had had enough and played along in order to seek a confession out of Fogle. She replied:
Is this the same website you found that 16 year old girl that you f*****?… I still can’t believe you only paid $100 for her.
And Fogle responded just as she expected:
It was amazing!!!!
Four exclamation points, there.
Of course, most readers certainly remember Fogle’s home was raided only last month on possible connections to child pornography, so these text messages reaching the public sure aren’t helping his situation, or Subway’s.
The text messages for the most part stem from the first half of 2008, but just as Hulk Hogan has learned recently, once it’s in the digital realm, that shit doesn’t just disappear, and just might come back to f*ck your life all up. And in such cases as these, sometimes, rightfully so. That’s what some people call karma.
According to Business Insider, the text messages were recorded by a court reporter back in 2008, offered from the woman’s phone. That court reporter’s record of the messages was also witnessed and was verified officially by a notary public. Additionally, Business Insider states it has conducted an independent verification into the legitimacy of the texts and confirms their authenticity.
Perhaps it is time to say publicly that this woman is to be commended for what she did, if not be known as a downright hero. Who knows where Jared Fogle’s desire for young girls has led him in the past or may have lead him in the future if left to run its course?
Now, how Subway handles the backlash from Fogle’s fallout will play a large role in how quickly and successfully the company can bounce back from their biggest spokesperson turning out to be such a dirty, rotten creep.
