The texts are between Fogle and a former Subway franchisee who reported the texts to Subway's corporate office at the time, the franchisee's attorney tells Business Insider. Subway says it has no records of her report.
The messages, which are from 2008, include Fogle encouraging the woman, with whom he was in a relationship at the time, to advertise herself for sex with other men on Craigslist and asking her if he can watch, according to Business Insider, which has viewed the messages. He also asks the woman to float the idea of a threesome with her cousin, who was underage at the time, and refers to paying $100 to have sex with a 16-year-old. (The age of consent in Indiana, where Fogle lives, is 16.)
In early July, Fogle's home was raided by federal and state authorities, reportedly in relation to a child pornography case against a former employee of his charity foundation. Since the raid, Subway has severed all ties with Fogle and removed any mention of him from its website.
Fogle, who gained fame after losing more than 200 lbs. on the "Subway diet," has not been charged with any crimes.
