Uh oh! Jared Fogle’s drama with Subway is far from over, as his ex-wife has filed a shocking lawsuit claiming the sandwich chain was allegedly aware for years that he was possibly a pedophile. Keep reading for why Kathleen McLaughlin claims that they knew of his sick ways, yet kept promoting him as an upstanding family man.
This is SO disturbing! Jared Fogle‘s perverted pedophile ways were allegedly made known to senior Subway execs years ago, but they didn’t do anything about it, according to his ex-wife Kathleen McLaughlin‘s bombshell new lawsuit against the sandwich maker. She says that had they done something about it at the time, she never would have married him knowing he was an alleged child predator, let alone go on to have kids with him!
In documents from her court filing obtained by TMZ, a complaint was lodged with a senior Subway exec in 2004 where he allegedly approached a young girl during a promotional event in Las Vegas and solicited a sex act from her. It goes on to add there were several other similar complaints that were brought to the chain’s attention and they did nothing to act upon them.
“Like the rest of America, I was shocked to learn what I learned in the weeks and months to follow,” Kathleen said in an emotional Oct. 24 news conference, referring to Jared’s 2014 arrest for possession of child pornography. “Finding out that your husband and the father of your children is a child predator and knowing that his job involved him visiting schools on a regular basis is devastating. Finding out that Subway did not act upon at least one complaint while continuing to utilize Jared as their spokesperson and facilitate his visit to those hundreds of schools is beyond comprehension,” she added, choking back tears.
She says she’s suing because she desperately wants answers to the questions,”What did they know, when did they know it, what investigations did they conduct and did they ever notify the authorities?” She’s seeking damages because they continued to market him as a family man, even using the likeness of Kathleen and her children in a viral marketing claim without her permission. She added that had Subway reported Jared way back when the initial claim was launched, she never would have married him in 2010 knowing what she knows now!
Subway said they “cannot provide comment” on Kathleen’s lawsuit. Jared is currently locked up in a federal penitentiary after pleading guilty in Nov. 2015 to possession or distribution of child pornography and traveling across state lines to have commercial sex with a minor. He’s serving a 16 year-long sentence for the heinous crimes.
