Is it true that prophet Muhammad’s close companion beat his wives? If so, how was he promised paradise?

Prophet Muhammad said:

Abu Bakr will be in Paradise, ‘Umar will be in Paradise, ‘Usmaan will be in Paradise, ‘Ali will be in Paradise, Talhah will be in Paradise, al-Zubayr will be in Paradise, ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn ‘Awf will be in Paradise, Sa’d will be in Paradise, Sa’eed will be in Paradise, and Abu ‘Ubaydah ibn al-Jarraah will be in Paradise.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi: 3680)

But I’ve also read that he did this to his wives

*Asma also recalled: “Whenever he reprimanded one of us, he would break off a branch from the wooden clothes hangers and beat her with it until he broke it over her.”

Al-Zubayr’s wives complained that he had “some harshness towards women”.[41] Asma wanted a divorce after he tied her and her (unnamed) co-wife together by their hair and beat both of them “severely”.
