Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle's ex-wife Kathleen McLaughlin is now suing the company over allegations that they knew of Jared's predilections as far back as 2004. The sandwich chain emerged remarkably intact from the headline-dominating arrest of Jared by the FBI in 2015; this is the first allegation that they covered up his pedophilia.

According to McLaughlin's suit, a copy of which was obtained by TMZ, a senior Subway executive received a complaint in 2004 that Jared had approached a young girl at a Vegas promotional event and attempted to solicit sexual activities. His previous prosecution already established that Fogle has paid for illegal sex with teenagers and sought to pay for younger girls. McLaughlin alleges the company also received two more complaints between 2004 and 2015.

She is suing for damages in two ways. Had the company not covered up Jared's pedophilia, she says, she would never have married him in 2010. In addition, she is suing because of an ad Subway produced in 2015, knowing about his tendencies and perhaps knowing the FBI was circling his associates. McLaughlin says the ad has caused great emotional distress to herself and her children.

As for Jared, he's apparently gained a lot of weight in prison along with a mean nickname, and he's still asking people for nudes.
