The Las Vegas mass murderer described himself as an obsessive gambler who bet millions of dollars, stayed up all night, took Valium and wandered glitzy casinos in sweatpants and sandals, CNN reported Monday, citing court documents in a civil lawsuit.

Stephen Paddock, who committed suicide after killing 58 people and wounding nearly 500 Oct. 1, bragged that he wagered "14 hours a day, 365 days a year" in a deposition for a lawsuit he filed after slipping on a wet floor in a Law Vegas in 2011, CNN reported.

"I'll gamble all night. I sleep during the day," he said.

Meanwhile, an employee of Paddock's told ABC News Monday that he was a man who cared about people, but a prostitute he frequently hired claimed he had violent sex fantasies and bragged he was "born bad."

"He actually cared about everybody," Lisa Crawford said on ABC's "Good Morning America." "He tried to make people happy. He tried to make people care, and I don't know what happened to him."

A Las Vegas prostitute described Paddock, 64, as a man who enjoyed sex fantasies and bragged that he was "born bad" because of his criminal father, Benjamin, who was a bank robber on the FBI's Most Wanted list.

The 27-year-old woman Sunday told Britain's Sun newspaper that Paddock would get "obsessive" and "paranoid" and wanted to tie her up while they had sex..
