Michael has been known as an avid gambler and in 1993 he admitted to having to cover $57,000 in gambling losses. He later appeared on 60 Minutes in 2005 where he again admitted that he had made reckless decisions.

"Yeah, I've gotten myself into situations where I would not walk away and I've pushed the envelope. Is that compulsive? Yeah, it depends on how you look at it,” Michael said. “If you're willing to jeopardize your livelihood and your family, then yeah.”
