Katie Fogle, the wife of former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle, announced on Wednesday she filed for divorce from her husband.
On the same day Jared Fogle agreed to plead guilty to charges that he traveled across state lines to have sex with minors as well as possessed and distributed child pornography, Katie Fogle issued a statement to the press.
“Obviously, I am extremely shocked and disappointed by the recent developments involving Jared. I am in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage. My focus is exclusively on the well-being of my children. Neither I nor my family will have any further comment on the matter. I appreciate respect for my family’s privacy during this difficult time.”

Jared and Katie Fogle are the parents of two girls. Since he will soon face up to 12 1/2 years in prison, she will get full custody of their children. As part of Jared Fogle’s plea deal, he will only be allowed supervised visitation once he is freed from prison–and only if Katie Fogle agrees.
It’s uncertain if Katie Fogle was there when Jared Fogle’s Zionsville, Indiana home was raided back in July by authorities who removed both computers and video tapes.
Jared Fogle became famous after losing lots of weighted–claiming Subway sandwiches were the basis of the loss. He went to work for the company as their spokesperson shortly thereafter.
Katie Fogle is no doubt livid–as well as humiliated–about her soon-to-be ex-husband’s heinous actions.
