Reasons why Subway’s Jared Fogle is in major trouble?
There is more trouble brewing for Jared Fogle, former spokesperson of restaurant chain Subway. His own words are going to haunt the man who was being projected as the ultimate family man by the company who has been credited with changing its image across the world.

He had reportedly boasted with one of company’s female franchisee that he paid a 16-year-old girl $100 for sex. This is according to an affidavit Business Insider says the Federal Bureau of Investigation subpoenaed. Now the noose seems to be tightening around him, at least in the case right now.

Business Insider report that is being cited by news sources across the world says that the Federal Bureau of Investigation seems to have good amount of evidence. Meanwhile there are further reports that court documents cite a series of text messages between Fogle and a former female Subway franchiseeNonetheless since searching Jared Fogle’s home last month till now the FBI hasn’t said if there was an open case. The same has been said by Wendy Osborne, special agent and spokeswoman for Indianapolis office for the FBI.While talking to the media Wendy Osborne said, “The FBI has no new information to release regarding this matter…The only thing we confirmed several weeks ago was that the FBI was conducting investigative activity in the Zionsville, Indiana, area.”

On the other hand Business Insider in a report said that it “independently verified the authenticity of the affidavit…We also verified that a phone number in the document was registered to a Jared Fogle”.

In the meantime Subway seems to have further distanced itself from Jared Fogle their poster boy of the past. “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”, a Facebook post by Subway said.
