Tuesday gossip roundup: Lawyer Okorie Okorocha is ready to fight John Travolta
While John Travolta‘s second accuser won’t be facing the star in a public trial, the lawyer representing him doesn’t want people to think they won’t be putting up a fight. “I want a full trial with a private judge,” Okorie Okorocha tells People magazine in response to reports the case may be heading into mediation. “There is no mediation. There’ll never be a settlement. I want privacy for sex crime victims. It looks like [Travolta's attorney Marty Singer] wants one hell of a fight, and that is what he’ll get from me.”
Katherine Heigl is opening up for the first time about Adelaide, the second daughter she and husband Josh Kelley have adopted. “The moment they put her in my arms I just felt an overwhelming sense of awe and wonder that this perfect little being was our daughter,” Heigl tells Hello!

What’s in a name? Well, for Chris Hemsworth‘s newborn daughter, India, it simply pleased the parents. “It was just a name we liked,” Hemsworth explains to E!

We sort of went, ‘Oh well, whether it’s a boy or girl, that will decide it.’ It just seemed to fit.” The 28-year-old “Avengers” star is equally pleased with finally being a father. “I’ve wanted to have kids for a long time, and here it is, and I couldn’t be happier.”
While Jessica Alba is comfortable with her public image now, it wasn’t always so easy, she admits — especially back in her “Dark Angel” days. “I had a show that premiered when I was 19. And right away, everyone formed a strong opinion about me because of the way I was marketed. I was supposed to be sexy, this tough action girl. That’s what people expected,” she tells Marie Clare magazine. “I felt like I was being objectified, and it made me uncomfortable. I wanted to be chic and elegant!”
Charlize Theron admits that everything in her life has changed since adopting a baby boy, Jackson, in March. “It’s strangely everything that you’ve hoped for and it feels so right. I don’t know how else to say it,” Theron tells E! News. “I feel like I can’t remember anything prior to him. I feel like it was always just meant to be what it is.”
It looks like Mena Suvari‘s divorce from Simone Sestito isn’t going to be an easy one, as Sestito is reportedly asking for $17,000 a month in spousal support, according to TMZ.

He estimates dining expenses as $3,000 a month and claims the actress earns $750,000 a year.
