I know this will probably come as a huge surprise, but Jared Fogle is not having a great time in prison, after receiving a 15.5-year sentence last year on charges of child pornography and sex with minors. As it turns out, the only thing prison inmates hate more than child rapists and pornographers are rich child rapists and pornographers, and as a result, he isn’t exactly making a lot of friends in his new surroundings.
A prison insider at Colorado’s Federal Correctional Institution recently spoke with InTouch and claimed that Fogle is regularly taunted by the other inmates, relaying one particular incident in which an inmate got physical after calling the former Subway spokesperson a “dirty child rapist.”
“The inmate slapped him across the cheeks several times and made his face red. Jared just stood there stunned, then ran out of the gym,” while inmates booed and called him by his prison nickname — “Chomo,” which is short for child molester — as well as another choice derogatory term for a coward. “He never ratted out the inmates who did it, though, because he was threatened that if he did, they would get him!”
To make matters worse, Fogle has been stress eating and has supposedly put back on approximately 30 of the 200 pounds he lost on his Subway diet.
“Jared’s breakfast is usually Frosted Flakes with fruit or oatmeal with cake. He loves ‘cake day’ in the dining hall twice a week and he buys Honey Buns by the box, as well as other pastries, in the commissary on his weekly shopping day,” adds the insider. “He’s been known to eat an entire box of eight at one sitting!”
Well, if the other inmates don’t get him, it’s possible that heart disease or diabetes could. Either way, he might as well go ahead and enjoy “cake day” while he can.
