Reports surfaced Tuesday that Jared Fogle, the one-time face of Subway, was being investigated by the FBI, and Subway and Fogle have responded by temporarily cutting ties.
“Subway & Jared Fogle have agreed to suspend their relationship due to the current investigation,” Subway said on Twitter Tuesday afternoon. “Jared is cooperating with authorities.”
Subway tweeted another statement just a few hours earlier: “We are shocked about the news & believe it is related to a former Jared Foundation employee. We are monitoring the situation closely.”
A spokesperson for the FBI could not provide any details to EW about the investigation at this time.
