West said he didn't think anything of it at the time.
On Sunday morning, he said he met with FBI agents and showed them his communications with Mateen.
“When we had gotten married, he confessed to me about his past -- that was recent at that time -- and that he very much enjoyed going to clubs and the nightlife," Yusufiy said. A former classmate of Omar Mateen’s 2006 police academy class, however, said he believed Mateen was gay.
One couple, who work together as drag-dancing performers, said they’d seen Mateen as many as a dozen times at Pulse.
Ty Smith and Chris Callen also said they’d seen him escorted drunk from the club more than once. Maybe he got radicalized and hated who he was,” Callen said.
She said he was physically abusive and a steroid abuser.
Mateen had even come to the attention of authorities, with the FBI interviewing him in two terror-related cases in recent years.
