"It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone," Danley said in a statement read by her lawyer Matthew Lombard outside of the FBI headquarters in Los Angeles.
Prior to the Sunday night shooting, Paddock bought his girlfriend a ticket to the Philippines so that she could visit her family. He also wired her a total of $100,000 so that could purchase a house in the country, the statement indicated.
"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen," Danley's statement continued.
She also said she would cooperate fully with the FBI investigation into the massacre. "Anything I can do to help ease suffering and help in any way, I will do," Danely's statement said. "Please respect my privacy and my family's privacy."
Landing in LAX airport on a return flight from Manila late Tuesday, the shooter's girlfriend released the statement Wednesday after spending hours speaking to FBI agents.
She also expressed sympathy for Paddock's victims. "I am a mother and grandmother and my heart breaks for all who have lost loved ones," she wrote.
Paddock checked into Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay hotel days before firing a hail of bullets late Sunday toward a crowd of concertgoers watching a performance by country music star Jason Aldean. He killed himself in the hotel suite he fired from.
