Question

I got confused by the verses 50 and 52 of Surah Ahzab which suggest that it was lawful for the Prophet to own female slaves or captives out of wedlock? So far as I know the Prophet had 12 wives. My question is did the prophet have any female slave or captives or concubines? Please clarify my confusion.Thanks a lot in appreciation.
