Despite the rollercoaster ride she went through with Chris Brown in 2012, designer-model Karrueche Tran remains optimistic about her relationship with her ex-boyfriend.

"At the end of the day, he will always be a friend. We’ll always care about each other. We won’t allow that to interfere. Our business is business," Tran revealed to Vibe on Tuesday in an exclusive interview.

"It’s a lot going on but it could be a lot worse," she continued. "And that’s how I look at life. I take it for what it is. I move forward, grow from it and at this point, that’s what I’m doing. I’m not gonna sit and dwell and become consumed in that negativity because I could very much be that person, especially when things are so public and so thrown in my face. But like I said, things can be much worse. So I’m good."

Tran's relationship with Brown came to a screeching halt at the end of last year when Brown was caught hanging out with singer Rihanna in New York City. They reunited briefly after that; however the sparks ended shortly after.

"I do care about him and I do love him," Tran said. "Family is very important to me, and I’ve always put it in my mind to remember that. For me, I’d love to meet somebody and grow and build a foundation, but I don’t want to even think about marriage right now. I can’t even get a clothing line out."

In the meantime, Tran says she has no plans to sit down with Brown or Rihanna to sort of their mess.

"For everybody, emotionally, that would just be way too much," she said. "I’m a very mature person so if the time ever did come where we would need to sit down and talk, I’d do it. I’m a mature person. I can work it out but that would be a lot. (Pause) Yeah, it would be a lot."

    Hi - The roller coaster can have Karrueche as one less passenger if she wisely bows out, gets on her feet and walks to another ride that doesn't have her in dependent kept woman status... ...With a boy who has publicly humiliated her numerous times. What is she waiting for...a mack truck or a 2 x 4 to hit her into some good sense...? Due time has come...she is overdue for no more rides on that flaky unsteady roller coaster... ### Get a real job, Karrueche, and stop leeching on chris. And stop feeding your emotional attachment to a "meal" that isn't fresh. It went stale, from a truly meaningful standpoint, months ago. You can't shop for fresh healthy produce if you're stuck on stupid...digesting months old spoiled goods...

    She is soo pretty. I hate how people act like just because they believe everything they blogs say about her and try to slander her name. Cant throw rocks in a glass house.

    Karrueche does seem like the only mature person in this whole mess and it sounds like she has a pretty good handle on herself. I like this interview she spoke well of a very messy situation. Best of luck ms. Tran!
