Do I have time to drive the hour and a half to visit my mom so she can give me a reassuring hug and tell me it’s going to be ok before I blog about this nasty mess? Maybe she can make a roast beef, too. That’s always comforting. The FBI have reportedly subpoenaed an affidavit containing texts between Jared Fogle and a former Subway franchise owner in which he claims to have paid a 16-year-old for sex. Even Tyga just made an appalled face.
According to Business Insider, the former franchise’s attorney is the one spilling the tea. Jared and the Subway owner were supposedly in a sexual relationship when they exchanged some really fucked-up sexts in the spring and summer of 2008.
Jared urged the anonymous woman in question to sell her ass on Craigslist for $500 a pop and to let him watch. Worse, he urged her to hook him up with her underaged (at the time) cousin.
Cross yourself and read:
“When can we find a time for me to talk to your cousin?” Fogle asks in a message dated May 1, 2008.
“Any more news with your cousin?” he asks the following day. “Tell me what u think about when u think of the three of us all together???”
Fogle seems to be all-pedo, all the time.
Earlier, in April, according to the affidavit, Fogle asked the woman, “How young would you like?… Would you want to have an adventure like that?”
Um, no? While we’re still in the “worse” category, Fogle claimed via text in June of that year to have paid a teenager to have sex with him.
On June 19, the lawyer says that Fogle again asked the woman to advertise herself on Craigslist. She responds: “Is this the same website you found that 16 year old girl you that you f*****? …I still can’t believe you only paid $100 for her.”
Fogle responds: “It was amazing!!!!”
She asks: “What part of her ad made you think she was selling sex?”
He says: “U will have to read them to see.”
No thank you, Creepshow. It should be noted that the age of consent in Jared’s home state of Indiana is 16. I’m still going with “ick” in this situation.
The anonymous lady (who should know better than to marvel openly at the bargain basement prices for sex with teens on Craigslist, cause WTF?) eventually “grew uncomfortable with the conversations over time” and hired a lawyer. He got the FBI involved. “Over time?”
Anyway, she claims to have reported all of this to Subway corporate along with a warning that he shouldn’t be around anyone in the To Catch A Predator age range. Subway, perhaps more concerned that the $5 Foot-Long wouldn’t be adequately marketed for the summer, didn’t do a damn thing and are claiming they never received the info. Fogle was only axed from Subway’s marketing when his home was raided for kiddie porn in early July.
Jared still hasn’t been charged with anything, and it’s not known what the Feds might have found on his computer(s). The US Attorney’s office hasn’t even confirmed that there’s an investigation. I’m willing to confirm that this story has made me nauseous.
