Whoa — this is HUGE if true!
A former Subway franchisee by the name of Cindy Mills has come out asserting that she warned the sandwich empire about Jared Fogle in 2008 — and the company failed to do anything about it.
What the what?!
Mills was the woman Fogle had been allegedly texting about paying for sex with minors.
Mills alleges that what Fogle told her about was a trip he had taken to Thailand where he had paid for sex with children between the ages of 9 and 16.
NINE YEARS OLD?! Ugh!
After receiving these horrific messages from Fogle, Mills claims she went to Subway’s executive Jeff Moody with the information.
Cindy says she alerted Moody towards Fogle’s inappropriate texts, and Moody claimed he had received similar comments!!
But according to Mills, Moody said something very bizarre to justify doing nothing about this news:
“[Moody] said, ‘Don’t worry, [Jared] has met someone. She is a teacher and he seems to love her very much, and we think she will help keep him grounded.'”
Moody, who is currently the CEO of Rita’s Italian Ice, could not be reached to tell his side of the story.
But if it’s true that Subway knew about Jared’s activities nearly a decade ago and failed to do anything about it… they could be in big trouble!
