Jared Fogle's ex-wife says Subway knew about his "depravities," and now she's suing the sandwich chain for an unspecified amount in damages, the Indianapolis Star reports. "I filed this lawsuit because I have questions" about exactly what Subway knew and when, Katie McLaughlin told reporters Monday. The suit alleges that a Subway senior VP was told as early as 2004 that Fogle, then a spokesperson for the sandwich chain, had approached a young girl sexually during a Subway event in Las Vegas, and that other than asking both Fogle and a franchisee about the incident, Subway did nothing about it and never contacted the girl.

The suit claims that Subway got word of Fogle's sexual interest in kids at least three times, but never did anything about it. Fogle is currently serving a 15-year, 8-month sentence for distributing child porn and traveling across state lines for commercial sex with a minor. (More Jared Fogle stories.)
