Taylor's 40 operations (including an emergency tracheotomy) led her to become overly dependent on pills and alcohol to dull the pain. On top of it all, Taylor was famously difficult to work with and was known to travel with an entourage of pets and assistants long before J.Lo made it fashionable to do so.
