The Filipina-Australian girlfriend of Las Vegas mass killer Stephen Paddock says she had no idea he was planning such "awful events" and she was tricked by him to fly back to see family in the Philippines.

Marilou Danley's Los Angeles lawyer, Matthew Lombard, delivered a statement from the 62-year-old former Queenslander on Wednesday after she spent several hours being interviewed by FBI agents in LA on Wednesday for clues on why Paddock shot dead 58 people and injured more than 500 others on Sunday.

Ms Danley described Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man and said he told her two weeks ago he found a "cheap ticket" for her to fly back to the Philippines, and when she arrived he wired her money to buy a house for her and her family.

"I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man. I loved him and hoped for a quiet future together with him," her lawyer said in statement to reporters.

"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."
