Aug. 19 brought two Jared Fogle-related headlines: The former Subway spokesman reached a plea deal with the feds on charges related to child porn and having sex with minors, and Kathleen Fogle filed for divorce. That divorce was finalized Nov. 16, reports the AP, and Fox59 reports on what court documents related to the divorce contain. Kathleen, who now goes by her maiden name of McLaughlin, has moved her two kids out of Indiana due to "intense media scrutiny." While Jared requested what Fox59 calls "in-person ... parenting time" while serving his 15-year sentence, Kathleen argues that would force her to return to Indianapolis, which she says is not in the children's best interest.

As for her ex, she claims he only has his own interests in mind, calling the aforementioned request "entirely self-serving." She asks to be granted sole legal and physical custody of the kids—and says Jared wasn't much of a dad anyway to their 4-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter. Due to regular travel, "he did not play much of a role in the day-to-day lives of the children even prior to becoming the focus of a criminal investigation." Fox59 reports Kathleen will get $7 million as part of the divorce settlement. (Recordings of some of Fogle's phone calls are very disturbing.)
