Bad news keeps on coming regarding former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle.

It turns out, the Jared Fogle Healthy Lifestyle Nationwide School Grant Program was a sham.

Many believed the foundation was built to combat childhood obesity — something Jared says was a personal struggle growing up. But according to tax records, the charity never actually issued a grant, despite his promise to give schools and community organizations $2 million.

In fact, records reveal that 60% of the non-profit’s budget actually went to former Executive Director Russell Taylor — who is currently in jail on child porn charges.

Another 26% apparently just disappeared.

Fogle is on home detention after agreeing to a plea deal. Investigators said Fogle admitted to receiving and viewing child porn from Russell Taylor and to repeatedly traveling from Indiana to New York to pay for sex with minors.

He faces anywhere between five and 12 years in prison, followed by home monitoring.

Meanwhile, his second wife, with whom he has two children, has filed for divorce.
