Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle admitted in a text message that he paid a 16-year-old girl $100 for sex, according to a new report.
Business Insider claims the FBI subpoenaed an affidavit that contains text messages sent between Fogle and a former Subway franchisee with whom he was romantically linked.
Fogle reportedly told the unidentified woman to advertise herself on Craigslist for sex with other men. He asked if he could watch the sex acts and said the woman could make about $500 per act.
At one point, she responded, “Is this the same website you found that 16-year-old girl that you f–ked… I still can’t believe you only paid $100 for her.” Fogle allegedly responded, “It was amazing!!!!”
The texts are also said to reveal that he asked to meet with the woman’s underage cousin.
The woman’s lawyer said she was concerned and shared the texts with Subway’s management at the time, but the company did nothing. Subway, however, said it has no record of her complaint.
The age of consent in Fogle’s state of Indiana is 16.
Subway has since responded to the new allegations on Facebook, writing: “About the most recent news story on Jared Fogle, this allegation, if true, is appalling and is contrary to the values of our brand. As previously stated, we have suspended our relationship with Jared.”
